Number 1 

Quota for Building Fund 
Approaches $70,000 Mark 

Contributors Respond to Appeals Made Last Full 

Seventy thousand dollars, or the cost of 

(he locker and dressing room wing <»t the 

new Physical Education Building, is the 

• i which has been set for slumni con* 

tributioni toward this worthy project. 

Thai part of the struct urt- when com* 

pleted, will be known as the "Alumni 

ol the building. 

At ,i special meeting <>f the building 

committee last June, it was It-It that a 

definite objective for alumni should be 

announced, since it was realised from the 

nning of the campaign that the larger 

share of the total cost of the building 

must come from other sources than 

alumni. Hence, with s total of $.'$.">,<i<mi 

idy donated l>y alumni in the form 

nf ^itts or pledges l>y alumni, an equal 

amount from this source would complete 

llumni share in the project. 

Public Gives ,25,000 

During the summer months the fund 

been increased 1>\ $7, (too, chiefly 
through gifts from private citisens who 
are not alumni. These benefactions 
brought the total amount of cash gifts 
and pledges from outside sources up to 

mm i. Some of tin- benefactors of the 
fund who are not connected with the 
College are: Mr. Wtnthrop M.Crane, Jr., 

and Mr. Z. Marshall Cram- of Dalton, 

Mass.; Mr. Ernest M. Whitcomb of 
Amherst; Mr. and Mrs. William A. 
Gallup, Mr. S. M. Merrill and Mrs. 
Jamea J. Storrow of Eioatoa; Mr. Frank 
P Knowles of Auburn; Mr. Joseph A. 
Skinmr of South Hadley. 

The work of presenting the project to 
individuals not alumni is continuing un- 
abated. Besides ecu, tin members of the 
building committee, the following alumni 
volunteered to assist in thia phase 

it campaign: Starr M. King '21, 
Dr. Carleton T. Smith 'is, Joseph 
Martin w's7. David II. Buttrick '17,

The five points picked out !>y > group 

of scientists for ,1 person who wishes 

success were the subjects covered by 

President Koscoc \Y. Thatcher in the 
opening Aaaembly «>i the year, held last 

Wednesday, September 18. He started 

with a brief introduction, mentioning the 
1. 11 1 ni the changes in the 1 ampua during 
1 he summer, the progress made on the 
Physical Education Building Fund, and 

the tew changet in the teaching stall for 
the coming year, 

"The name ol this college," said Presi 

denl That' her, "hi Ma— a. husettS 

cultural College, and the students should 
not give the false impression that they 
.ne ti\ ing to ' hange the name ovei the oi the trustees by calling it an) 
thin^ else outside of the college grounds." 
lie continued by saying that this would 
^i\e a \>.i<\ impression to those who 
thai their work ia t<> keep the inter) si 
ol the college ever in mind, namel) the 
trustees. The agitation for the change 
i .hi continue so long as it doe-, not mi> 

■ -ent the in-tit iitinn and emi.u 

the chances "I the changing of the name. 

I'm \\ says that the live point- in ' 1 - 

for bui ' e - are: Education, Health, 
Income, Social Responsibility and Spiritu- 
ality. < >t course, education ia the prime 
motive ol this college course, but the 
others should not be forgotten, as they 
all go into the well rounded requirement 
for -in ' '■--.

group .m>\ stayed over night with them. 
Professor Harlow of Smith College also 
accepted an invitation to vi-it the (amp, 
and he and Mr. William- led a cimptire 

discussion group. 

Sunday morning the campers were 
visited by Dean Machmer. Everyone 
joined in playing voile) ball and

man who gained many pointa last year, 
although he had no experience previous 
to that t ime. 



In order to relieve crowded lock) r room 
conditions, -i "basket" system has been 
installed during the past summer in the 
Drill Hall. By this system, each student 
taking physical education or track has a 
ba-kct iii which his equipment i- kept. 
I'm lure a work-out, he gets his basket and 
a lock and key and take- a locker, in 
which he leaves his basket and clothes. 
After class, the student returns the 
basket, lock, key, and towel to the bask) t 
room, which is located in the north end 

nl the locker room. 

rowel service vvill be included in the 
dollar laboratory fee for physical edu- 
, ation, ami clean towel- will be furnished 
as of ten as necess ry. No towels or equip- 
ment should be lent or borrowed. Mr. 
Neenan is in charge ol the basket room, 
and he will be assisted b) -t udent help. 


A Large (iroup Failed to Signify 
Their Preference 

In the double line ol fraternitv 

which formed in front d Stockbi 
Hall Monday morning the hands 

about one hundred Ireshineii were shaken 

in congratulation. It is a significant 1 
however, thai a large number ol im ■

Freshman Win 

Parade by Senate's Ruling 

Sophomores Victorious in Majority of Bouts 

Opportunity cum for the freshmen to 

avenge themselves at the Kazoo Night 
and Nightshirt Parade ted Friday eve 
iii iiK- Seven o'clock found most of the 
.liable contestants of both classes in the 
|)rill Mall, ready for action. The boxing 
and wrestling events were first on the 
[.rogram, the boxing bouts lasting for 
three rounds of two minutes each and 
the wrestling matches for five minutes 
at the most. Ralph France refereed the 
loxing and Robert L. Armstrong the 
wrestling, while Kenneth A. Salman, 
I.orin E. Ball and Lawrence E. Briggs 
wire judges. William E. Bosworth acted 
a- announcer. 

The first boxing bout was between 
Elmer J. Thompson "62 and Smith '33. 
The advantage was with "Doc" through- 
out the few seconds of action, at the end 
of which Smith was on the floor. The 
boat was given to "Doc" Thompson. 
Next, a wrestling match went to Robert 
L. Diggs "32, who overpowered the 
slippery VV. A. Maclinn ';«. The star 
boat of the evening came between Oscar 
Margolin *32 and H. Shuman \'M. At 
i !u- end of the third round both were so 
tired that they could hardly stand up, 
and their blows were merely pushed at 
each other. H. Shuman won this on 
points, his blows landing more often than 
In- opp onent 's. The next wrestling event 
eas given to Herbert If. Chase *33 who 
was matched against R. P, Hunter '.'W. 
George L. King "32 won over S. Bkna 
^•"it '.'!.{ in the second round. The next 
wrestling bout was the most evenly 
matched of the evening, with Warren 
W. Fabyan ".',2 against R. K. Hicks '.;:;. 
IIk ks, although smaller, held his opponent 
"it until the end of the five minutes. 
throwing him as many times as he hit 
the mat himself. The last of the boxing 
mate lies went to Aleck Smith "A2, who 
was paired against If. V. C.oodstein ':{.'{. 
The two were pretty even until the third 
round, when "Al" Smith took the lead. 

At the conclusion of the bouts, the 
rules of the Night Shirt Parade were ex- 
plained to the freshmen by Eric Singleton 
30, acting president of the Senate. As

Chorus of About a Hundred Voices 

A brand new music program is lieing 
organized at M.A.C this year. Thus far, 
two principal phases of the project have 
been planned and put under way. The 
first is the organization of a mixed chorus 
of about one hundred voices. Any and 
all four-year students are eligible for 
this chorus. There will be a one hour 
rehearsal every week, and all members, 
who are eligible in the dean's office as 
well as being faithful in attendance to 
rehearsals, will receive one credit toward 
an Academic Medal, a medal worth 
winning. There will be given during the 
season at least one campus concert, with 
the possibility of one or two in addition. 
The coach will he Mrs. Oracc Beaumont. 
Although voice tryouts were held a few 
days ago, all students who would like 
to sing in such a chorus for two terms 
are urged to re|Mirt at the first regular 
rehearsal pn ss l b U for a supplementary 

The second phase of this project is to 
stand under the name of the Bay State 
Entertainers, an organization which will 
have two main activities. The first will 
be a program of specialty numbers, both 
musical Bad dramatic, and will be under 
the supervision of a Leaders Committee.

an opportunity to have a good time, as

The schedule starts with a meeting 
Thursday evening, October .'i at 7 o'c loc k 

in the Memorial Building for all inter- 
ested in debating. Alter that, through- 
out the first term there will be practice 
debates held every Tuesday evening for 

upperc -lassmen and every Thursday eve- 
ning for freshmen. The practice debates 
are o|K-n to men and women alike, and 
all are invited to derive the- benefits of 
-in h meetings. If you have never had 

any debating experience, here is the 

chance tO get it. There will be two 
intramural debates, which will be open 
to the public. The question for the first 

is; Resolved) That the name of the 

Massachusetts Agricultural College be 
changed to Massachusetts State College. 

The varsity debating season will begin 
the first part of the second term. Stu- 
dents of all classes, both men and women, 
are eligible to try out for the team which, 
very fortunately, will be coached by 
Professor Prince of the English depart 
ment. The schedule, while not definite, 
will probably be as follows: Amherst 
College (tentative , Springfield College 
here. University of Vermont in Burling- 
ton, \'t., Middlebury College at Middle- 
bury, University of Maine here, Colby 
College here. Clark University at Wor-

made with colleges near Boston. The 
freshmen will continue to have practice 
debates every Thursday evening and 
conclude their season with several dates

Employing quite a different method of 

play than they use-d last year, the Poweloin 

football eleven will journey to Amherst 

next Saturday to ((intend with t he

Coach Morrill of lioweloin is leaching 

the brand of football expounded by the- 

venerable Pop Warner. In the- main, it 
is bas ed cm an unbalanced line with the 

winged back eiffe-nse- always on the right 
or long side-. 'This is being varieel to

against some diftic nil ie-s when near the 
sideline-, chiefly because- it CDuld not make-

guard* available- to the Maine team. A 

broken collarbone has forced Gatchell,

Bowdoin has no captain, i lystem fun 
big been adopted whereby Coach Morrill 

will appoint g leader before e ,m |, game. 
The Pas State team has been taking 

advantage of the points which Coach 
McGeoch noted during the- Bates game 
and have been hard at work smoothing 

things out and are- looking forward to a 

much smoother w o r kin g eleven to be on

Maroon and White, than the- squad which 
went to LeWtStOa last week. Last we-ek's 
win has given the- te-am considerable 

confidence in t hem s el ves and they are 

out to prolong this winning streak ,i- 
we-ll as to avenge last year's defeat at t he- 
hands of the Bowdoin eleven. 

In all probability, there are to be no 
changes in the- lineup with the exception

Each year it is the same old story and 
Suggestion lie courteous. I (I spile of t he 
fad that we are all considered fortunate 
in being a part of the few who have the 
opportunity to get a college education, it 
is necessary to bring to the student's 
mind a mention of courtesy; its place) 
purpose, and effect. 

This Saturday will find on our campus 
College students and other visitors who 
have never before visited our College. 
The impressions they carry away with 

them may mean a peal deal in time 

hence. Whether or not our football 
team wins a glorious victory, remember 

that we must be courteous at .ill times. 

There is an opportunity lor cheering, for 

silence, for an altitude of good fellowship; 
and above all a time lor welcoming visi 
POTS in the most cordial maimer. If we 
all keep in mind the fact that we an- a 
part o| the fortunate lew. WC shall be 
able to greet visitors with an extended 
hand ami open heart that will make them 

desirous <»t returning. 

Besides being courteous to visiting 
athletic and academic teams it is neces 
sai\ that co urt esy on our part extend 
to i. in assemblies, of course, there can 
be no strenuous objection to sleeping 

during chapell ami assemblies, but dis- 
turbance by a few individuals not only 

makes a disagreeable environment for 

those who wish to hear the speaker, but 

also creates an unfavorable im pres s i on 

upon the speaker. If a student is not 

interested in the speaker, there is no 

reason why the student should decide to 
whisper or talk to his classmate. 

In the third place, WC must he coiiitc 
oils to each other. < >ur College is known 

widely lor its unequalled spirit ol good- 
fellowship and demo cra cy. A "Hello 

there" or a "Hi" helps to create an 
attitude which we desire here among 
students on campus. It requires no 
excess energy to speak a word of greeting 
or to pass along a friendly smile. 

Keep these three suggestions in mind 
if you have not heard of them before; 
and if you have heard of them put them 
into effect. Welcome the visiting teams 
as quests and not as rivals. Treat Speak- 
ers as teachers who are giving valuable 
advice and contributions to a liberal 
College education. And lastly, the friend 

ships you make during your college days 

are the ones that remain after all others 
have reached an end. Truly, a kindly 

word of greeting is a stepping stone to 
true friendship. 

and in college should be' 
similar yet there- is, as a rule, a great 
difference as the freshmen find out. The 

majority oi high schools make lew de- 
mands on a person's mental power and as 
a result the ability to concentrate, and 

to thoroughly analyze a problem must 

lie developed in the early part of the 
college course. 

It is often a matter of surprise to the 
in u man to find that part of the curricu- 
lum at college often parallels that of 

high school to some extent, lie studies 

the same subjects the- fust year in college, 

toi instance, that he did in the lower 
school. Much to his surprise, he is apt 

to find that his efforts do m>t bring the 

-aine results as formerly. Whereas 
knowledge of a lew type problems would 
secure a passing grade for him in high 

school, he is now required to study and 

to know the method of solution. 

The necessary adjustment to the new 
conditions cannot be- made in a clay or a 
week. It will come only after a period of 

dose application. It may necessitate two 

hours of study in place of the customary 
one-, and may demand much exercise of 
one's will |>owcr, but it is a necessary 

Now, you new people, it is never too 
early to start, but it is frequently too 
late. I. earn how to study to that you 
will be able to grasp the important points 
of a subject- whether it be Knglish or 

Dairying. Learn to get at the roots of a 

problem to get a broad understanding of 
the- principles, and, if you can acquire 
this habit through your four years at 
college your time here will have not been

Coach Charley Crowley of New York 
University has something new and differ-

the football field, from which he suspends 
a dummy line and backfield. When he

getting the full benefit of impediment to

Why do so many Students fail in their 
vvoik at this college and drop out? Is it 
because they sin-nd their time- driving 

around the- country iii speedy roadsters 

oi because thev live the high life depicted 
by the- motion pictures of college life? 
Not at all! It is rather peculiar, but

a ^reat dial ot time- over their work and

|f>c Scribe 

'Way hack in the class of 'ST, long 
before- CO-eds invaded the campus, there 
llourished an athlete whose ability was 
among the highest in all the historv ol 
the State- College's athletics. For three 

years, this man played varsitj football 
and to this day is regarded as one c;f 
the- greatest ends this College has seen, 

As ,i member of one of the oldest Ira 
ternities on the campus, he has been 
living in and near Amherst for the greater 
part of his life- and has spent a ^rcit deal 
of his time on the campus. He is admired 
and respected by all. They call him "Pop" 

Knowing all this, Ye Scribe decided to 
pay "Pop" a visit and ask him a few 

questions about certain things, especially 

the fraternity situation at obi Bay State. 
Whereupon, Ye Scribe proceeded to the 
Phi Sig house w here he fired a barrage of 
questions at the old athlete as follows: 

"What do you think of the fraternity 
rushing situation at the State College, 

"Frankly s|>eaking, I don't like it," 
was the prompt reply. 

"Why don't you like it?" pops up Ye 

"Well for two reasons. First, the in- 
coming freshman, knowing nothing at 
all about fraternities unless, of course, 
he is a legacy goes to all the houses, 
snakes hands with many men whose 
names it is impossible to remember, is 
asked a hundred times where he came 
from and whether he was an athlete or 
honor student in high school, becomes all 
muddled up and gets very little chance- 
to look over the men. Most of the time, 
he is shown the seniors who have made 
the-ir letters in football or base-ball or the 
Phi Kappa Phi men but is very seldom 
given a chance to meet with sophomores 
and juniors with whom he would have- 
to live if he joined the fraternity. The 
freshman does not get enough time to 
look over the- men in one- week of rushing. 
The second reason is that the fraternitv 
itself has not the opportUttit) to look 
over the men during the short time 
allowed for rushing. Many times it 
happens a pledge is not the type of 
man representative of the fraternitv.'' 
"Then you think deferred rushing 

would be better?" 

"My p ers o na l opinion on the matter is 

that it would be much better, because- it 
would benefit both the men and the 
fraternity. I don't say when I'd like- the 
rushing SflMflH whether in the first or 
second term but I do believe that the 
freshman derives a good deal from the 

fraternity during his freshman year. You 

See, many boys object to being rushed 
off their feet and I do believe that more 
would pledge in deferred rushing." 

"But what about the opponents of the 

"Well, I suppose they are of the weaker 
fraternities who fear that they will not 
get enough men to keep going, but there 
they are mistaken because it is well 
known that very few men join a frater- 
nity because of its house or furniture." 

"What do you think of 'free lance' 

"As formerly practiced here, 'free 
lance' rushing is unfair to the freshmen." 

"In general, elo you think fraternities 
serve a good purpose here?" 

"Yes. I believe that there's some group 
on this campus that can fill every hoy's 
need. Besides, if I had it my way. every 
house would be about ccpjal in strength, 
all having good men with the rest. A 
house having all good men every year 
would sexin die of dry rot. Another 
thing, I would like to see a system here 
where it would not be a breach of eti- 
quette for a freshman to ask to join a 
fraternity which he likes. Then again, 
the College should come before the 

fraternity; to do good for the College, 

one- must do good for the fraternity. Of 
fraternities, there should be- enough to 

absorb nearly all the boys on the campus. 

Thev can be a very good thing for the 
Institution. Ye s sir. I am a firm believer 
in fraternities."

Il was not until last year that three- 
hours per week weie allowed for 
b I- ol the band to get together for 
I luce terms of the- academic year. 
| time was allotce! from the niilitarv 
dule and the office force sat up nights 
ng all the band men arranged to 

come at the proper hour. Everyone 

knows the result. 

During all this time, men who had 
bet n in the band as freshmen and sopho- 
mores confined their upiH-r-class band 
itics to telling how poor the band 
and on very special occasions, of 
rse donning the maroon and white 
and magnanimously lending their pres- 
ence to swell the number of apparent 
bandsman. Of these men, one notable 
exception exists. One junior not taking 
military attended every practice his 
junior year. He was hindered from 
Ring during his senior year on account 
fourth hour class. This is the only 
.m of a man doing something for the 
band and the College when there was no 
ring multitude to applaud his college 

Until two vcais ago when the I'.S.A. 
■uppiied instruments for a 88 piece band 
'Kc- men had to use their own with the 
exception of nine college-owned instru 
-niits. The former are the property of 
the 1 ■ & government just like ritlc-s and 

At the present time, the freshmen and 
■ophomores are so divided for niilitarv

military band. However, there is a good

are many reasons why a student ami

Of trying to force any issue it is • o! 

carrying «•" agitation in favor of a change 
of name to let the public know that the 
students .lie sincere in tlieir attitude and 
that the movement is not one of short 
duration, hut one that will exist until 
some definite decision has been reached 
in regard to the name of the College. The 
I'resident is in favor of propaganda which 
states that the word "Agriculture" in 
"Massachusetts Agricultural College" 
does not accurately represent all that 
the College is expected to do. 

Furthermore, the I'resident is in sym- 
pathy with the idea of changing the name 
of the College. He gave the following 
statement which expresses his feeling 
during this |>eriod of agitation: 

"I |>ersonally and individually would 
favor a name for the institution which 
would be more inclusive and descriptive 
of its purpose and activities." 

The I'resident would like to see the 
word "Agriculture" left in the name 
becaUM of its historical significance. He 
agreed that the word WM not necessary, 

The Committee suggested a iHicstion- 
naire to he sent to each alumnus and 
to each member of the faculty which 
had been approved by I'resident Thatcher. 

The Committee obtained the support of 

I'resident Thatcher upon this suggestion. 

The questionnaire mould include questions 

somewhat on type of the following: 

(1) Do you want the word "Agricul- 
ture" left in the name of the College? 

(2) Do you want the name of the 

College changed to Massachusetts State 

(3) What would you suggest as a name 
if you an- in favor of change other than 
Massachusetts State College? 


(Continued from Pa&e 1) 

any and all four scar students, both nun 

and women, may take part provided that 

such participants are scholastically eligi- 
ble. The tryouts for this organisation 

will he announced soon. 

The second activity of the Bay State 
Entertainers will he the promotion of a 
dance orchestra under the direction ot a 
student leader. All players must he 
scholastically eligible. The leader will 
he elected soon and the trials announced. 
The Hay State Kntcrtaincrs will he avail 
able for outside dates early in November, 
and will be managed by Gilbert Dean 
Swift and Elsie M. Hauhenreiser. Its 
leaders will be Ruth Scott and l.ucien 
W. Dean, and its committee-woman ex- 
officio will he Mrs. Beaumont. 

The President was entirely in favor of 
using the words "Massachusetts" and 
"May State" in newspaper articles, 
speeches, etc., instead of the words 
Massachusetts Aggie. He said, however, 
that the use of the words "Massachusetts 
Agricultural College" will do "our" cause- 
no harm for we might still explain that 
this is the state college. It is had policy 
to give the impression that the name of 
the college already has been changed. 

In regard to the Land C.rant College 
Survey the report is as follows: 

The questionnaires sent out by the 
Survey hoard are all in and are being 
summarized. A preliminary report is to 
be given out at the meeting of the Land 
Grant College Survey Hoard to be held 
in Detroit in November. 

The President is entirely in favor of 

publicity for the College (provided it is 

authoritative and sympathises with the 
committee in that publicity certainly can 

be placed upon a less agricultural basis. 

The Committee received the hearty 
support of the President in regard to a 
Student's Publicity Bureau something 
that has been under consideration for 
some time.

cises not only withdraw us from godliness

football playing, 1 protest unto you it 
may rather be called a friendly kind of 
fight, than a play or recreation; a bloody 
and murthering practice, than a fellowly

to overthrow him, and to pitch him on 
his nose, though it be upon hard stones?

ule. However, let something tome up particularly appeal* to them a 

trip, or ,t game, perhape and behold, 
there is the tie I e***ry time. 

it ii uauall} interesting to notice those 

people on the campUi who .ire most 
willing to lake up additional work. They 

are, in the majority of cases, those who 

are doing most, and in spite of the extra 

burden do the |ob satisfactorily. The 
lituation ia lomewhal similar to that 
existing in a public conveyance i •> of 

our targe .ities. No matter boa many 
people croud ill there always seems to be 

room for one more, and tins always 

arrive at their destinations. Of routs., 

we do not advocate that one should take 

OH more and more work, no matter how 
much he already has, but we 00 think 

that before a person refuses to do some 

tiling and gives as an excuse the lack ol 
time, he should think it OVC1 carefully to 
see whether that is the real reason or not. 
Alter he has thought it over he might 
be willing to shoulder the extra burden. 
This would mean that his capacity would 
be enlarged just so much and his develop- 
ment advanced in proportion. 


Why is it that we tend to forget what 
we are striving for most earnestly? Last 

Saturday's game serves very well as aa 

example to illustrate the |K>int. Some 
time ago, last spring to be more exact. 
the student body accepted and agreed to 
circulate freely the names "Hay State" 
and "Mass.ii husctts" instead of "Agates," 
"Aggies," and other expressions of agri- 
cultural significance. Yet. at the game 
students seemed to forget completely 
that "Hay State" existed except in one 
song. Why shout "Come on, Agates!" 
or 'Tight, Aggies!"? Though renowned 
and celebrated throughout our traditions 
in the past, "Aggie" is no longer a tra- 
dition of the present. It was voted bj 

the students hist spring to eliminate the 

word from songs, sp e e c h e s , and cheers. 

Then, why does it still exist ' 

It is not that we as students frown upon 

the word "Aggie." Yet, we wish to sub- 
stitute a term more appropriate in its 
significance of the student's attitude at 
the present time. In the first place, 
"Hay St. ite" is a r ep r esen tative name for 
our state college. Massachusetts is 
known through history as the Hay State, 
so why not let the latter name represent 

the one college in the State controlled 

wholly by the Slate.'' I he term is. indeed 
more exclusive and original in that no 
other college or institution of equal rank 
tan adopt "Hay State" with more sig- 
nificance. It is then impossible to con- 
fuse another college known as an "Aggie" 
with our College tailed "Hay State." In 
the Second place, the term "Hay State" 
is more pleasing to the majority of stu- 
dents. "Aggie" implies a purely agricul- 
tural significance. Think of the term and 
von think of agriculture alone. Think of 
Hay State and you swell with pride in 
hearing a name with such an important 
bearing on history. In the third place, it 
adds to the right kind of publicity. It 
promotes and brings before the public via 
the press the fact that our College is not 
purely agricultural in its scope. 

Of course, it is absurd to anticipate a 
BUdden substitution for the word "Aggie." 
Nevertheless, by using the term "Hay 

State" fre qu ently and especially at the 

football games this fall we can bring 
before the visitors ami spectators the 
face that we now exist as "Hay Staters. 
The term will certainly tome into current 
usage if the student body promotes the 
cause. Then, as loyal and enthusiastic 
"Hay Staters" use the word in your 
cheers, songs. ,uu\ speech. 

If all tJtltlSfS given bv students lor 

failure to do certain things were tabu- 
lated, without doubt the one that would 
occur most frequently would be. "I have 

no time." How often that is heard during 
the COUTSe of a day! Yet. how seldom is 

it really true! 

There is no denying the fact that 
students at this college are very biisv 
studying and earning then living at the 
same time. Their dav- and evenings 
Beem tilled with .utivitv and the time 

worn excuse ia to all appearances .> legiti- 
mate reason lot not doing man) things. 

Tin individuals who fall hack oil this 

subterfuge are not wilful!) misleading 
anyone. 1 h< really believe that their 

time is tullv taken up and that the) 
cannot lit anything else into thrii ached- 



Last Thursday evening, Mr. A. C. 
Hottes, now connected with the "Better 
Homes and ('.aniens" magazine, gave a 
very interesting talk to the combined 
Landscape and Floriculture Clubs in 
French Hall. Mr. Hottes was formerly 
professor of horticulture at the Univ. of 
Ohio, and is the author of several well- 
known gardening books. 

With an exceptionally pleasing |ktsoii- 
ality the speaker brought out several 
points of good advice |>ertaining to 
following out any life career. "He your- 
self," he said. "An affected attitude will 
never push you forward. You must know 
human nature, be able to talk to people 
in their own language, and sell yourself 

before you can sell your services." 

Mr. Hottes closed his talk by saving 
that there are three kinds of men: prac- 
tical, scientific, and emotional. We must 
try to be something of each. If we never 
become what we have trained for in 
college, we should not be ashamed, for, 
while we have been at college, we have 
rece iv ed an outlook on life that will 
guide us, an advantage which the speaker 
expressed as a "psychic income."

W'al, Folks, vuv asked me, Harem 
Scrub, the teown's tidiest man, to tell 
yuz heow I made all my money. W'al, 
ya see it was in a very pcc-culyar manner 
ami I'll tell ya why! 

In 1929, to be exact on October 2nd, 

the worst, dirtiest catastrophe in history 
banged into our pretty, peacef ul, and pure 
community,- namely we had a bit of pipe 
trouble, and for 24 hours the hull blamed 
teown wuz minus H. I. J. K. L. M. N. 
(), I guess that's what college peeple 
call it, II to O, or as sum folks pree-fer 
to say just plain, ordinary, everyday 
water, on account of the water-main's 

On my poor father's deathbed, he 
called my brother Scarem and I saying: 
"Hoys, I've just had a vision. I see dry, 
dry times. He prepared and good-bye, 
Harem ami Scarem." From that day 
Scarem and 1 filled every old utensil 
from the salt shakers to the bath-tub. 
For years we made a specialty of collect- 
ing water, and fer that very reason hoi 
only canned and bottled goods fer nigh 
on ten years. When prohibition came, 
we thot that was the dry spell, and nearly 
gave up, but exactly at 4 o'clock on 
Oct. I. 1939 the telephone rung and 
announced that the water wu/. shet off, 

From then on it was one sad story, 
Folks. Considerin' as to what wu/ the 
purpose, wu/ our rates. For plain ordin- 
ary kit< hen water, we solt by the epiart 
50c. Win. the old coal-bin wu/ emptied 
quicker'l) a cook's monkey. Fer the 
bigger things sec h as fer food preparation, 
we solt c|iiitc reasonable. 

Hut we was kind o' savin' on the supply 
and I'll till ya whv: We knew that 
long bout morning' some folks' beards 
would begin to look kind a' bail, and by 
cracky, from 7 o'clock in the mornin' on 
we solt water fer shaves at the- price of 
underwear, suits, from *. r > up or what- 
ever we'd a mind to charge and they heel 
it. Drinkin' water solt to from 10c to 
|2 per swallow, considerin' how fussy 
sum folks was about the containers. As 
that what came from olt tabaccy cans 
Warn'! so much as thet what we'd been 
sav in' in cutglass dishes. 

Well, we'd about solt out all we had 
until we'd about turned the hull house- 
so it looked like the devil had an auction 
and couldn't sell out. We did have a bit 
left, though, in spite. 

Not thet I am of the kind thet's not 
grateful to the Lord for his eloin's, but 
I couldn't help but wish it could 'uv 
happened on Saturday, then think of 
the prices we'd 'uv got fer Saturday 
night baths! 

Fanny is glad to hear that someone 
knows the co-eds and from the precision 
of the "new movements" she suspects he 
is majoring in military, too. 
Just to keep the freshmen up, no it's 
not the "Acorn Club." Try lnkhorne. 
Does sound kind of nutty, though, we'll

13c Scribe 

In 1066, William the Conqueror never 

thought for a moment that a de s cenda nt 
of one of his brave followers would CrOSB 

a mudi wider English Channel to conquer 

a country strange- ami new. Surprising 
as it mav seem, this modern Conepicror 
did not come with warships and soldiers 
but arrived armed with the sword ol a 
desire to ham. America welcomed that 
Conqueror. The whole College campus 
is glad th..t sin- vis. a young lady by 
the name of Miss Honore Frechevi lie- 
has made this College her "Dover ." On 

perceiving the friendly interest ol all in 

her, Ye Scribe, always inquisitive, de- 
cided to get a few of her first impressions 
on America if possible. So, with great 
difficulty, Ye Scribe, succeeded in gaining 
an interview. 

"Miss I recheville," queried Ye Scribe, 
"what could have been your reason in 
coming to study at this College?" 

"Well, you see, 1 came here on the 
recommendation of former President 
Hutterheld who said that there was a 
splendid opportunity to learn dietetics 
here. Since 1 want to be a dietician, I 
was permitted to come here by m> 
father, although only on three weeks 

"When you came, you landed in New 
York. I suppose. Diel you like our 
largest city?" 

"Yes, but New York was a sort of 
Hash to me because we went from the 
boat to the train directly. It was very 
fascinating to go through the streets in a 
taxi; it was like going through a tunnel." 
"What are the things that struck you 
as the most strange in Amherst." ven- 
tured Ye Scribe. 

"There are two things that stand out 
among the rest. First, it gives me a 
strange feeling when I find that 1 may 
speak to anyone as an equal wherever I 
go. I like it immensely. It's rather sur 
prising the way everyone says "Hello" 
or "Hi" when they meet on campus, but 
it's very nice indeed, uheu you gel used 
to it. Second, there seems to be no 
poor people ill Amherst. In England, 
every town has its poor section but I 
haven't see n any around this part of the 
country. Of Course, I know nothing of 
the large cities." 

"Tell me. Miss Frechcv ille." askeil Ye 
Scribe, "is our English hard for you to 

"To tell the truth, it is. Perhape many 

iieople- do not realize it but since I have 
been at this College I have noticed 
several different vernaculars. In England, 

the educated people all speak the same 
English, of course, the uned u c a ted have 

a variety of dialects." 

"Do you like eo eduction, may I ask?" 
"Yes. I do. I like it because- it's more 
different, more interesting. It produces 
quite different types of men and women 
than there are in Kngland. It makes 
them more unself -conscious and natural. 
Things aren't as formal as in Kngland 
where girls are much more looked after 
than here." 

"Then you like it here?" 

"Very much. It's jolly strange."

Practice for the M.A.C. soccer candi- 
date* last week consisted mainly ol 

scrimmage games, in which the team 
showed up fairly well, considering the 

fact that only three men have had any 

experience in the game. In these scrim- 
mage*, the following men were outstand- 
ing: Bernard, Davis, Fabyan, and Zuger, 
forward*; Suher and Van Leer, defense 

men; and Jon zak and Northcott at 
goal. The team has adopted the name 
MAC. Yellowjackcts" from the color 
of the jerseys. 

A schedule is being drawn Up so that 
every man on the squad will have oppor- 
tunity to play. Next Tuesday, October 

15, the second team will meet East- 
hampton High School. Practice this 
week will consist of work on funda- 
mentals and the correction of errors that 

were apparent in last week's games. 

In the first game on their schedule, the 

freshman football eleven contested the 
South Dccrfield High gri-lsteis to a 0-0 
lie on Freshman Field last Friday after- 

Both teams showed a lack of practice, 
the frosh especially, and consequently a 
number of fumbles ensued. South Den 

field gained an advantage in yardage 

when some of their backs plowed through 
the scrimmage for a considerable dis- 
tance. Wood played a verj good tackling 
game for the fresh and Jahnle, < ioodstein, 
and Zillman also played quite well fa 
the yearling*. Houran, left guard on the 

frosh outfit, was forced from the held

Just as all was becoming quiet on the 
New England front, President Angell of 
Yale (obsolete word for what is ROW 

called New Haven i had to spoil every- 
thing, including the new eleven o'clock 
rule at Smith. No doubt he would have 
spoken sooner had it not been for the 
dnmst incalculable difficulty <>f getting 
more than twenty of the college together 
,,t the same time in New Haven. The 
situation is so critical at New Haven that 
anyone caught in town over a week-end 
is forces to walk around sheepishly in a 
false lace trying to look like a Fuller 
Brush man. Manv succeed quite well. 
President Angell pointed out in his pithy 
Statement that trips to Northampton

cause "disastrous degeneration" and arc 
•harmful physically ami mentally." It

men must te turning into a soft, luxury- 
loving group with little to do outside of 

endorsing yeast sad old Gold*. What 
they need is some rugged organisation 
like the Outing Club. The fundamental 
problem of why anyone should take a 

two hour trip up the College Highway to 

go to the movies in Northampton is as 

yet unsolved. An eight mile trip with the 
same Stupendous results is, of course, 
highly reasonable. The onlv result so far 
is that President Angell's talk seems to 
have given most of New Haven an idea 
on where to pass subsequent week -ends. 
Next, .'resident MacC'racken of \ assar 
made an important and startling contri- 
bution t.> the question by saying that 
students often eat harmful food while

Segregation Leads to ArtihVialm ss

"Poverty Party" Will le Held in 

Memorial Building with Music 
by the Amherst Serenaders 

Next Friday, October 18, the long 

awaited, first ranipus dance will he held 
in the Memorial Building. Not only will 
it DC welcomed as the first college dance 
but also as another of those "1931" 
parties that have livened up so much the 
college life during the past three years. 
With the sam class and the same com- 
mittee in charge as ran the "Old Clothes 
Party" and the "Spring Sports Dance" 
of last year, another equally enjoyable 
evening is assured. 

This particular party is called the 
"Poverty Party," and will live up to its 
name. Old clothes will be worn with 
impunity, and tramps, beggars and 
"what have you" will frolic with miik 
maids, gypsies, and rag dolls. Every 
student of M.A.C. is thus given a chance 
to show his originality at an inexpensive 
costume party.

I'nde-r the auspices of Adelphia, the 
first Student Forum of the college year 
will be held during the assembly hour on 
Thursday, October 24. In order to «ive 
the student body some idea of the matters 
to be discussed, a tentative list has been 
prepared. The forum will consist, in 
part, of the report of the Honor Count il; 
a discussion of morning chapel exert ISCS 
aml how to make them more varied and 

interesting; the report of the Agitation 
Committee; the question of doting 

assemblies with tinging; the possibility 
of some COntett as a substitution for the 
banquet scrap; and the matter of borrow- 
ing books without signing for them. 


_>e Scribe 



Next Thursday during the assembly 
hour Adelphia will conduit the first of a 
series of three student forums to be held 
this year. To the freshman such a thing 
as a forum is a mystery and an experience 
not yet undertaken in college. To the 
upperclassman who has spent one or more 
years attending these occurences, it is a 
time when one who has no interest in 
college affairs may take a cut or slumber. 
Yet, at our College the student body 
it a very important factor in all of our 
collegiate activities. It is a general 
accepted belief that the student body 
makes a coUcfB what it is. We respect 
one college for its social prestige, another 
for its athletic achievements. In practi- 
cally every case the fame of a college 
rests in the student element. Likewise. 
open forums are a part of our activities 
in that they constitute a means whereby 
our activities are governed, Forums here 
at our College are founded in the purpose 
of promoting student opinions on prob- 
lems and matters of general interest to 
the whole student body. With this pur- 
pose kept well in mind each of us should 
feel willing to express his or her opinion 
on questions presented. 

After every forum there is a feeling or 
attitude that what so and so said was all 
wrong. Some feel that the hour is wasted 
while others continue to argue long after 
the assembly has ended. During this 
short period there is every opportunity 
given for expression of student opinion, 
and there should be no lingering feeling 
of opposition or attitude of disagreement 
on matters discussed. 

To encourage the student's interest in 
the subjects to be presented next Thurs- 
day the CS-llfian this week prints a list 
of the reports to be made and matters 
to be discussed. All of us should have 
definite convictions regarding these mat- 
ters, and we all should be glad to air our 
opinions as well as to contribute our little 
bit to possible solutions. Then, is there 
any reason why we can not have an 
interesting anil lively student forum? 


Coach "Red" Hall's Stockbridge foot- 
ball team pinned a 7 to defeat on 
Palmer High School at Palmer last 
Saturday afternoon. Hucg scored for 
the visitors in the third period after a 
terles of line plunges and off-tackle 
plays, and he rushed the ball across the 
line for the extra point. 

Several penalties prevented the Stock- 
bridge team from further scoring, since 
they were much heavier than Palmer, 
and the home team never had the ball 
past midfield. The play of Hueg, Wheaton 
ami Captain Hill was outstanding for the 
winners. The Stockbridge lineup was as 
follows: Hakkinen, J. Twohig, re; Oksa- 
nen, rt; Fish, Brown, Faulk, rg; Smith, 
White, c; Keene, Nelson, J. A. Hill, Ig; 
Quick, Leonard, It; Durkin, W. Twohig, 
Fetch, lc; Simond, K. Hill, qb; Whedon, 
rhb; E. Hill (Capt.), Moulton. Ihb; 
Hueg, fb. 

Nearly fifty men now comprise the 
Stockbridge squad which is practicing 
daily. The development of several new 
men will probably cause a shift in the 
lineup for the game with the Connecticut 
Aggie freshmen here Friday. 



What was wrong at the football game 
played on Alumni Field last Saturday? 
Certainly it was not the game itself, for 
the contest proved to be one of the most 
thrilling battles ever waged here, in spite 
of the defeat. However, there seemed to 
be a factor wholly missing in the eyes of 
the alumni who loyally returned to their 
Alma Mater in the hopes and earnest 
expectations of not only seeing the 
Maroon and White eleven in action but 
also of gaining a conception of the present 
type of Massachusetts student now at 
their old College. 

From various interviews it has been 
concluded that the cheering and singing 
of the student body are no longer a part 
of a college man's activity and duty to 
his college. During the first quarter of 
the game there was only a slight noise 
from the west side bleachers; and surely 
that was the time when our eleven fight- 
ing representatives on the gridiron were 
in need ot student barking. At least we 
could have shown that we were watching 
the progress of the contest. Then, be- 
tween the halves, where was the usual 
singing, where was the enthusiastic 
cheering? Does it take the presence of a 
single leader to stimulate the students to 

The Stockbridge Y.M.C.A., organized 
at the close of winter term, 1929, has 
been active in welcoming the freshman 
dtss this fall. The Stockbridge Fresh- 
man Reception was held recently under 
its auspices and proved to be a very 
popular event. "Sam" Chapin S'30 
presided. President K. W. Thatcher 
addressed a welcome to the entering 
class; Rev. John Hawley, of the First 
Congregational Church of Amherst and 
Mr. J. Paul Williams also spoke. Re- 
freshments followed the fine program and 
after much singing and talking the party 
broke up. The Stockbridge Y.M.C.A. 
has extensive plans for the coming year. 

Its officers are as follows: 
President, "Sam" Chapin S.':iO 
Vice -President, Richard Chadwick S':<0 
Secretary and Treasurer, Arthur Phelan 


Interchurch Chairman, Judson Hastings

From the C.C.N. Y. Campus. 

(With a bow to Mr. Kipling) 
I've taken the courses I've had to 
And now that I'm finished I'm glad; 
For I've had my run of instructors, 
And most of the lot were— bad. 
In Drawing and Phils, and Rio., 
In Math, and in Lat. and in Mus., 
Amongst the whole crowd and I'm shout- 
ing this loud — 
I found there was little to choose. 

First there was a gray-headed fellow — 

Said that he hated all rules; 

Wanted to treat us like "he-men"; 

And not like children or fools. 

So the "he-men" started a-cutting, 

They cut him with vigor and vim, 

Hut the next thing they seen, was a note 

from the dean 

(Hope you know what I mean) 
And 1 learned about teachers from him! 

A prof, in the Philo. Department 

I '.oasts of his wide-open mind; 

Claims he is willing to listen 

To troubles of any old kind. 

He gave me a "H" (as requested) 

Then lowered the mark— on a whim, 

When I kicked up a fuss, the sarcastic 

old cuss 
Changed the "B" to "C," 
And I learned about teachers from him!

Professor R. A. Cooley of the depart-

College has just resigned his position as

and as Experiment Station Entomologist

as announced by President Alfred Atkin-

I was just about to tell the story about 
an Irishman who was celebrating his 
44th birthday, — but that number is not 
so popular after last Saturday. And 
besides, you wouldn't like it because he 
lived on 44th Street, worked on Section 
44 on the railroad, his ancestors came 
over in '44, and he had just won 44th 
prize in a contest. — So far, far into the 


"Please turn your head to the right, 
will you? Just a little more. There, 
that's it. Good! Turn your eyes towards 
me. Fine! Now, look at my hand. There 
you are; that's fine." 

As he said these words, the dapper- 
looking young man sporting a well- 
groomed mustache looked over his sub- 
ject with the eye of an expert and quickly 
ducked behind the curtain of his camera. 
Industrious George Ebenhek was at his 
work again. Thus Ye Scribe found him 
in the basement of Stockbridge Hall 
taking the Index photographs. As a 
travelling photographer, George has been 
many places and seen many people so 
Ye Scribe saw a fine chance ot find out 
something about the photographing game. 
After waiting for some time, Ye Scribe 
managed to get him alone. 

"Do you travel much?" queried Ye 

"Why, yes, I do," was the reply. "I've 
been in the south as far as Alabama and 
Texas and north as far as Canada and 
Maine, taking pictures in all kinds of 
colleges and universities." 

"Say, George, you must know a lot 
about human nature. Which is the more 
expressive, the lips or the eyes?" 

"The eyes, I think. A young person's 
eyes tell more about the individual than 
anything else. If they fail to be ex- 
pressive, the life of a picture is gone. 
When I say "Smile," 1 want only a 
cheerful expression. In a grin, the lips 
fail to express the individual character. 
The eyes express feeling, desire, and 

"How can you tell when a person is 

"In many ways. The way a person 
walks to the chair, the way he sits down, 
his posture, and the way he holds his 
hands are all very good at indicating how 
a person feels." 

"Tell me, who are more vain, men or 

"In this school, I have failed to see 
any real difference although I noticed 
that there were a few men who were as 
vain as any of the women. I am more or 
less astounded how the students have 
been so well behaved here. In some 
colleges I have a lot more trouble than 
1 have had here. The girls at this college 
are among the best I have ever taken 
because there is not even one-third of the 
competition here that there is in other 
girls' colleges. Some girls stand before a 
full-length mirror for hours trying to look 
like that "IT" girl in the movies." 

"How do you like photographing college 
people, George?" 

"Fine. There is a splendid chance to 
get some rare pictures in taking so many- 
young people. Besides, I meet so many- 
people that I get an opportunity to 
study character as it is expressed in 
their faces. There was one girl in the 
south who thought she couldn't possibly 
take a good picture but she's in the 
movies now because she had it taken. 
You see lots of things in this game." 

"What do you think of our campus?" 
was the Scribe's last question. 

"It's a gem," said George as he got up 
for his next customer. 

The Collegian accepts no responsibility for opin- 
ions voiced in "The Forum." It aims to serve ai 
a means of giving expression to student opinion, 
and will print any views expressed rationally and 
sanely, unless the editors feel that they are justi- 
fied in suppressing them because of unfair per- 
sonal attack. Communications must be limited to 
500 words. 

To the Editor of the Collegian: 

Years ago, so 1 am told, when In- 
formals were announced in Chapel, the 
mob arose and sang the co-ed hymn, 
"God Send l's Men." Nowadays, so 
Mr. Harlow would have us believe, the 
men should arise and sing a little hymn 
all their own, "God Send Us Co-eds." 
Co-eds are an elevating influence. But 
who wants to be elevated? And the 
co-eds, being women, are romantic and 
idealistic. If you believe that one, you 
deserve the fur-lined nose-protector. The 
man proves himself a romanticist by that 
statement alone. 

Men are the idealists, the romanticists. 
Life — and women — takes all that out of 
them soon enough; but women are born 
materialists. Little boys play the "rob 
the rich and give to the poor" games; 
little girls play with dolls and provide 
imaginary husbands to support them. 
A woman wants no more out of life than 
ease and comfort for herself and — her 
one bit of unselfishness} — for her children. 
A man is forced to have the same aims, 
unless he is wise enough to keep himself 
free of feminine entanglements and the 
well-known Dame Nature has guarded 
against that possibility. And Mr. Harlow 
is unwilling to leave even a boy's college 
years free from feminine materialism. 

Mr. Harlow would also have us believe 
that the mingling of men and women in 
class leads to freer expression. The 
freshmen may believe that. Freshmen 
will believe anything. But we who have 
lived under the system know better. 
We have found by experience that the 
presence of the opiiosite sex stifles any 
sort of discussion. No co-ed will c\>r 
lift her voice in class. Some one might 
discover her latent intelligence and noth- 
ing is more to damning to a co-ed than 
a reputation for cleverness. No man will 
ever hazard a question. Men are notori- 
ously tongue-tied in the presence of 
women. And with co-eds who prefer to 
appear beautiful but dumb and men who 
are afraid to open their mouths, how can 
any mere professor hope to stimulate 
any sort of discussion, let alone elicit 
intelligent comments? 

Then why go to a co-ed college? Be- 
cause co-eds don't completely ruin class- 
work and, after all, pseudo-romance, 
with a co-ed in the moonlight, is better 
than no romance at all.

exercise their vocal cords? Perhaps, 
within the latter question rests the reason 
why we have leaders. 

At such an event as Home-Coming 
Day wc need to do our best, especially 
when it is expected rightly of us. Yet. 
without leaders it seems impossible to 
accomplish anything in cheering and 
singing as a group. In conclusion. WC 
leel certain that the student body would 
appreciate very much if their tenders 
were present to encourage the students 
to sing and cheer at the appropriate

Noah Webster, the man of many words, 
says that "Co-education is joint educa- 
tion, especially two sexes at one institu- 
tion." Therefore, why are the men not 
co-eds? Well, by deductive reasoning, 
they are. Well, what of it? Doesn't help 
matters a bit. 


The ideal home-coming that we hear 
about: The band to greet the prodigals 
or otherwise. But, where was it?

Have you become acquainted with the 
flashing picture display on campus? A 
fine collection of modern Spanish posters 
is now on view at Memorial Building. 
These have been collected and circulated 
by the Art Center, New York City. 
While America may be the land of the 
bill boards, the study of outdoor posters 
as works of art has gone much further in 
Europe than in America. In Europe 
many of the best artists have given their 
attention to the production of effective 
posters. The present collection of recent 
Spanish work will be most instructive to 
those who are interested in art, in general 
decorative design, or in modern Spanish. 

Do not miss any of the fine picture 
exhibits which it is our privilege to have 
at "M" Building during the year through 
the efforts of Professor Frank A. Waugh.

to the farthest university in the world it 

it had had thai ley Seiubower on its

the smallest university in the world if it

the story of the paradox of (| u - proximity

their high school chum went there an 
easy, lazy way to choose a university, 
but may be about as good as any in the

about all that any university can offer

"Co-education? And how! As it exists

it is undoubtedly civilizing on the boys. 
It teaches them to wash behind their

nobody wears one shirt over a year, and 
this comes off for a clean one for tin-

Massachusetts, brown, Ellen, ami Holm 

berg gained consistently, ,\\u\ the work 
"I Captain Mann, Cox, ,uu\ Foskett 
featured the forward line. 

Middlebury ran back the opening 
kick -oil to the thirty-yard line, but alter 

little gain, Guarnacda dropped back to 

punt. Cox blocked the kick and Ba\ 

State recovered the ball near midfield. 
Ellert, Holmberg, and Brown combined 

to give the home team a Ihm down, but 
the advance was stopped when Middle- 
bury intercepted a pass. Guarnaccis 

broke through tackle for twenty yards, 
and after another first down, a quick 
lateral DS-M paved the wav lor a tuciity- 

yard gain. Guarnaccis carried the ball 

the remaining distance for a touchdown 
on three more plays, and Mcleod scored 
the extra point with a placement kick. 

After the kick-off by Middlebury, 
brown punted, but the ball was run 
back to the Massachusetts thirty-yard 
line. The visiting backs took the ball to 
within five yards of the goal, and on tin- 
first play in the second quarter, C.uar- 
Baccia scored another touchdown. Me- 
Leod's kick again went bet w een the posts 
to give Middlebury a 14 to advantage. 

"Dickie" Bond fought his way forty 
yards to midfield after Middlebury 's 

trick-off. Brawn, Ellert, and Holmberg 
ran around end and through the line for 
three successive first downs. On the next 
play, Holmberg's pass hit a Middlebury 
p layer, but "Ray" Mann caught the ball 
and crossed the line. A rush for t he- 
extra point was unsuccessful. Neither 
team could gain consistently in the re- 
mainder of the period, and the game was 
a punting duel near the center of the field. 
In the- second half, Mann recovered a 
fumble at midfield, and brown kicked 
Gaamacris and Jacobs made- three- first 
downs, but after an exe hange- of punts. 
Middlebury fumbleel again, and losketl 

recovered. Three- plays netted a iral 

down, and brown made- twenty \arels 
through the line. On the- next play, 
Hohnberg earned the- ball lor a touch- 
down. The pass for the exlia point failed, 
later in the period, Elicit made- twenty- 
yards through scrimmage and, with 
Holmberg, made two mote- first downs to 
put the ball on their OpfsfiSsSSsts' ten-yard 
line. Two plays netted no gain, but 
Bond hit the line for four yards, and a 
touchdown seemed imminent as the- final 
whistle sounded.

"S egreg a ti o n is unnatural" was the 
third point in the defense. A visit to 
colleges all over the country has in<li. 
cated to Professor Harlow that the sixes 
cannot be advisably separated in the 
world of today, even though that may 
have been done in the past. There exists 
an artificialness in the relations between 
members of segregated colleges which 
eo education replaces with sincerity, allow,

service to develop. 

Professor Harlow's concluding argu- 
ment stated that the outstanding prob- 
lems of today can be solved not by one 
sex alone, but by both, thinking and work- 
ing together. A challenge lies before this 
generation to make educational procesSH

I. .i-i week there was circulated among 
the newspapers of the State an article 
which has created considerable comment, 
especially among the uodergradaates ol 
the College who have perchance read the 
contribution. In order that all may havt 
an opportunity to read this article we are 
taking the privilege of printing it in this 
column, for il certain!) does have an 
important bearing on a present problem. 

AMHERST, Oct. 16 "1 see nothing 
to be gained and verj much to !>«■ lost b) 
a public campaign ofl the campus for the 
change in the name of the college while 
the matter is under consideration by the 
proper authorities," declares President 
K. \Y. Thatcher of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College. 

"A petition foi a change in the name 
was signed by a large majority <>f the 
students last year and presented to the 
board ol trustees at their annual meeting. 
Tne board has the matter under consider- 
ation, Ian as \<-i has not announced its 
tinal conclusion and probably will not do 
mi until a survey of the scope and func- 
tions <»i the land grant colleges by the 
Federal Bureau of Education is com- 

"From the standpoint of the activities 
of the institution, such as resident teach- 
ing, research, extension, and control sir- 
vice, the name Massachusetts Agricultural 
College is not ■ misnomer, since three 
fourths of the institution's work is agricul- 
tural in its objective; Imt from the point 
ot \ iew of collegiate teaching, there is the 
question which deserves serious consider- 
ation whether the name should continue 
to suggest that it-- resident teaching is 
narrowly professional or vocational in 
character or should l>e changed so a> to 
show clearly that this state-supported 
institution in Massac huset ts is designed 
to afford (in the words ol the original 
Federal act) opportunity for the 'liberal 

and practical education of industrial 
classes in the several pursuits and pro- 
fessions of life. 

"Recently, articles in some of the 
prominent newspapers of the State have 
indicated that the misunderstanding of 

the scope of the college has kept awav 

from it large numbers of properly quali- 
fied Students who might have enrolled to 
very great profit to themselves and to the 


"There < .in DC no objections to news 
paper reports of student activity on the 
Camptts; but any reports which in any 
way relate to the student campaign for 
the change of the name should be limited 
to. and made clear that they deal only 
with, the student activity and interest in 
the mattci ." 

In the first place, we can not understand 
why the conclusion is drawn that "three- 
fourths of the institution's work is agri- 
cultural in its objective." In the second 
place, we are desirous of finding the recent 
articles referred to, which have indicated 
a misunderstanding of the scope of the 

We, as undergraduates of the regular 
four-year collegiate course, are primarily 

interested in our gTOttp Consisting of 

approximately G0O students hopeful of 

attaining, some day, Bachelor of Science 

degrees. We are not all majoring in 
agriculture; yet, the fact that we are all 
majoring in agriculture has been reported 
to the committee in charge of the Land 
Grant College Survey. Following is a 

tcpK received upon investigation ol the 
report : 

"The Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege at Amherst in the past always 

grouped their students in item No. 1 

Agriculture, For instance, for the year 
ending June 30, 1028, Massachusetts 
Agricultural College indicated ."<:;."> stu 

dents in agriculture and none in any other 

course ol study. This classification is 
obvious)) inaccurate as the enrollment 
oi women in the Home Economics courses 
should be shown separately." 

On such a questionnaire as returned to 
the survey committee there are propei 

provisions made uheteliv the number of 
students in each major may be listed, 

I his list of majors in< lude Agriculture, 
I orestry, Veterinary, Medicine, Home 
Economics, Arts and Sciences, General 
Sciences, etc., Agricultural Engineering, 
Vocational Education, and many other 
majors given in state colleges and univer 
sities. Therefore, why should a student 
majoring in Zoology, Economics, Chem- 
istry, or even Forestry, and Veterinary 
Science, be classified as agricultural 

majors in Mich an important report 
the one sent for the Land ('.rant College 

Survey? Is it fair to the College, to the 
faculty, to th< student body? Are all the 
members oi the faculty teaching agricul- 
ture? Certainly, we do not believe they 
are teaching purely agriculture. A recent 
survey of the teaching stafl reveals that 
52.2J of the institution's staff (including 
resident teachers, experiment staff, and 
county agents) are engaged in non-agri- 
cultural activities, classified after the list 
as issued by the Department <>f the 


It should be understood that by bring- 
ing this matter before the alumni, faculty, 
and student bodv , we are not endeavoring 

to stimulate any personal accusations or 
false impressions. It is wished and em- 
phasized that we, .^ undergraduates, 
must be accurate in publishing our 
opinions, convictions and arguments for 
the desired change. Then, as undergradu- 
ates, do we not have the ri^ht to expect 
in return accurac) in the primed articles 

and report- from other- dealing with the 
present problem" We do not feel and 
believe ourselves radical or indiscreet in 
our convictions; we ask merely fof 
justice ill our i au-e. 


Taken as a whole, Student Forum has 
not been what might be called an over- 
whelming success on this campus, la 
several isolated instances much interest 

has been shown on the part of the stu 

dents, but the general impression of the 

function is one ol ii-elessiiess. If this i- a 

correct impression, it is entirely the fault 

of the student body, anil if the event is 

to take on any significance it must come 

direi tl\ from the students thenist Iv t s. 
The main criticism of open forum seems 

to be of its apparent futility. Matters 

arc presented and discussed, after a 
fashion, but to all intuits and purpose- 
the'. die there. In this last statement, 
however, there are two fallacies. In the 
first place, real discussion seldom takes 
place. The subject under consideration 
is exposed to the lire of bursts of oratory 
and ridicule, to the enjoyment of the 
audience, and while several may talk 
little is said. In the second place matters 
do not always die with the closing bell of 
the exercise. They are usually brought 
to the attention of the proper authorities 
and are given serious deliberation, though, 
as might be expected, main ol the pro- 
posals are impractical or inadvisable. 

Another reason for lack of interest 
might be that the majority of students 
are unprepared on the topics discussed. 
This difficulty ha- bein overcome as far 
.is tomorrow's session is concerned by 
publishing the program for discussion 
beforehand, let us look this over and 
give the matters a little thought so that 
we can come ready to take advantage of 
the best Opportunity for expressing our 
ideas on those things that intimately 
concern us.

"Well, I haven't seen much of it but 
I surely got a kick out of one thing this 
afternoon at the football game. You 
know the time when our team wasn't 

noinn so strong during the set and quarter? 

There was a young feliow a short distance 
away from me who was veiling and cheer- 
ing by himself almo-i all the time-. At 
times, everybody would join in when the 
team made a good play but he kept 
yelling all the time. He earned a varsity 
letter then and there if lettirs could be 

given for cheering. That's what I call 

"Spirit." He did his part. 1 also liked 
the way the opponents were cheered b) 
you students. 

"Do you think the students' plan to 
make this the State College a good one?" 

"Yea, aftef what I've seen and heard 
today, I think this place would be an 
ideal location for the State College. 
Funny thing, though. I never heard 
about it Changing the name. I mean 
until my son came here." 

"We're taking care of that. It won't 
be long now. But, Say, could 1 show you 
anything of interest to vou?" 

"Yea, you could. Tell me, whcre's tin

scoreless in the first half of the game last 
Friday on Alumni Field, the visitors 
made two touchdowns in the second half 
to defeat Coach "Red" Ball's team 14 to 
0. Eddy and Warren, Connecticut backs, 
marched down the field in the third 
period, only to lose the ball on downs on 
the Stockbridge four-yard line. A few 
plays later, however, Gates scored after 
catching a fifteen-yard forward pass. 
DeRosa kicked the extra point. In the 
fourth quarter, Gates ran back a poor

To the Editor of the Collegian: 
"A little learning is a dangerous thing 
Drink deep or taste not the Pierian 

"A little learning" is indeed a "daunt: 
cms thing" (as witness many of our smuf 

products of Positive Science', and for 

this, if for no other, college authorities 

must search for the highest quality, of 

excellence in education. It is this qualit 

of excellent e, or rathei t he lack of quality 
ot excellence in this institution which I 
am attempting to discuss hire. 
To explain the present system of edu 

cation here briefly: The courses of stud 
are divided (roughly speaking into thi" ■ 

divisions, the social scii-ines, the DM 
logical and natural science, and tin 
agricultural groups. The student must 
major in one group and take at 1- 
eighteen credits in tin other two. Thi- 
vvc an told, is to insure that our edi, 
cation shall be both liberal and practical 
and it is this wish I (and many of tin 
present junior classi most firm!) disagree 

It is my belief that there are tWO 
staples of education the humanistic and 
the scientific. Common sense denies i 
value ol vocational training for anyone 

excepting the individual who is planning 

on entering a vocational I alter. Set in 
spite of this rather obvious truth, the 
educational authorities in this institution 
insist that nine credits of vocational work 
are necessary in order that our education 
may be both "liberal and practical." I 
see no fault in the requirement of nine- 

credits oi science for the student majoring 

in the humanities or vice versa BIPCC 
• divisions are the staples of edm i 
lion they are truly educational and a 

narrow in— ot vi-ion in either field is I" 

he most seriouslv deplored. 

Perhaps it will be Wise St this point to 
examine more Carefully the ideal ot c 
cation which we are advised to strive 
here in the words of the catalogue an 
education "both liberal and practical ' 
"Liberal" ought sun Iv to he i dear enough 
to us but "practical" "Ah! Then - 
the rub!" 1 fear that "practical" i- 
nien Iv a more carefully chosen word lor 
"vocational," and if this is SO, the r«.e,_ 
nil ion of a high educational standard in 
this college is automatically denied. For, 
lo force voc ationali-m on a student ami 
lo call this education is -im Iv ridii uloi.-. 
and to force a student lei turn from t 
study which he enjoys and prohts t; 
lo one which is intellectually rcplu 
to him i- not only ridiculous but dan 
ous. Surely no rare perspicuity of judg- 
ment is needed to grasp the e 

weakm — ol su< h .. system if we have an] 
concept i on at all concerning the tn* 
ideal of education. This true ideal should 

he the assimilation of facts so that 

student's mind ma) approach to • 

Newman calls for lack of a proper term 
the philosophic level. Perhaps one i 
say that this is an impossible Ideal to 
sei few, if any. will ever atta 

but what oi that? Because an ideal 

high one must we do away with it Ol 
up a lower one let us say an educational 
kfeal which insures us ami eelueation 1 
"liberal and practical." 

With these facts in mind, therefore, 
surely no one can deny that the reqt 
meiits of vocational credits for the 
dent who is seeking a high ideal in I 
cation is decidedly unwise, and eves 
detrimental. It is my sincere hope 
that of many of the student body 
the weakness of the present syste 
education will become obvious to I 
authors and that a newer and wiser 
will soon replace it in our college 
State College of Massachusetts. 


To the Fditor of the Collegian: 

I do not believe that there an 
students who would care to admit 
the object of education should p 
be to amass a selfish, dollar and 
fortune. I believe we all more or I 
agree, theoretically at least, that t" 
capital as a measure of the vahl 
position of knowledge to the welfan 
state, would be a barbaric degene 
of intelligence. It is clear then, t! 
must learn and do for the sake of k

I have s.ii<l that a student campaign 
at present would be harmful to the 

welfare of the College and should like to 

explain briefly my reasons. Some <>| us 

who have been active in the Physical 

Education Building Campaign and in 
formulating the College's Five Near 
Building Program believa that the Col- 
lege is now passing through a critical 
period Many wealthy citizens of the 
State are considering this College as a 
possible beneficiary of their philanthropy. 
Officials of the State Administration are 
favorably considering the outlay of large 
sums for permanent buildings on our 
campus during the next five years. Public 
agitation by students at this time for a 
change of name is embarrassing to those 
who arc- trying to consummate these 
arrangements and it may prove to be 
the means of very serious loss to the

various portraits obtained, but also a 
goodly number of woodland scenes. 

In spite of one or two casualties the 
hikers enjoyed toasted niarshniallows, 
while sitting on logs around an impro- 
vised open air fireplace. 

Everyone arrived home in good season, 
tired, but feeling that the afternoon had 
been profitably spent. The general 
opinion was the next hike, which is to 
be next Sunday a f t er noo n , to Orient 
Springs, will be well attended. All those 
who wish to go meet at the East Experi- 
ment Station at 2 p. m. Several of the

they can in that time about camp cookery.

Massachusetts team. Ilolmberg then ran 
through the whole Norwich scrimmage 

only to be hatted by the Cadet'i safety 

man alter a X', yard gain. Waining,

Massachusetts pass and ran it back to 
the 20 yard line. 1'oskett, MAC. 
tackle, bloc ked a Norwich aerial just as 
the half ended. 

In the third quarter, the Horsemen 
showed a strong offensive- and towards 

the middle of the period, O'Brien re- 
ceived a Massachusetts kick on the home 
team's .'i. r > yard line. Another successful 
pass from O'brieti to Teacbout netted 
the Cadets 20 yards. Waining then 
crashed the line for a couple of yards and 
again for five yards. Norwich success 
fully executed a line plunge for a first 
down. O'Brien then carried the ball two 
yards nearer the Massachusetts goal line 
and TeachoUt went over for the Norwich 
tally. The forward pass in an attempt to 
gain the point after touchdown was not 
completed. For the remainder of the 
period the Massachusetts team showed 
much more cleverness at offence than 
before and the period closed with the ball 
on the Norwkh I* yard line-, and in t he

was snapped into play. Minkstein, M;hM

edge and talent, that we must lerve tin- 
Mate because we are her privileged ritl- 
/.ens, and that mercenary l>ias in either 

case, is disloyalty to others and to our- 
selves. My question is, can we justify 

the present activities of our college ill 

vie* of the principles we occa sio nally 

hold so dear? 

I have gained the impression that the 
student body of this college is rather 
men enary in its ambitions. If you do 
not think this to be true in the majority 
of cases, listen to the senior: "Where 
can I Ret a job?" Listen to the alumni 
boast, if they have been extraordinarily 
fortunate; their boast is the magnitude 
of their income. You rarely hear what 
an alumnus intends to return to the 
State for his college privilege. The atti- 
tude is out and out a mercenary one. 
How many students turn out for a 
political, liberal, or international re- 
lations dub? Though the number is 

slowly increasing, it is astoundingry 

small, and I know. 

This is no lling at science or agricul- 
ture, but I sincerely believe that we lack 
the proper spirit of citizenship. There 
are two reasons for SUCh an attitude. 
The majority of the students COOie from 
a sodety in which money is the activating 
interest and we do not have the proper 
spirit of citizenship instilled in us during 
our college course. The first, we cannot 
Correct, but the MOOnd is ours to amend. 
We must all earn our daily bread, but 
the washing of beakers, memorizing 
passages of Hcouitlf, and the lure of the 
dame are not enough; we must have 
more. We must have the "Stadtgeist" 
taught us in all its purity and with all 
its responsibilities. Newspaper articles, 
■peaches, some classroom dissertations 
with all the bluster of Vocationalism, 
indicates the direction of many oi our 
masters' greatest interest: . a golden 

state, with an empty heart and a lack of 
noble endeavor for the duty thereof. We 
can thank bare Vocation. dism for the 
present labor conditions. The hands i>| 
labor have been trained until they bleed, 
the mind has been exploited, bet the KUll 
of true citizenship has been forgotten. 
It is evident that we must change our 
attitude towards the privilege has 
come to us. We must learn for the sake 
of knowledge, and we must accept the 
college gift with the hope, anil will, to 
give more in return. Where are we to 

tind the leadership that such a change 

demands? There is but one answer, but 

tin' student body must ask for it. for 

this is also evidently neceaaary. The 
agitation that is brewing in the student 

body is not alone to shift a piece of termin- 
ology, such is incidental, but it is t<> 

honestly give back to the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetta a purer, broader, and 

nobler conception of the trust incor- 
porated in a college education. The 
Golden-age must answer our questions, 

and those who have done wrong, shall 

find in themselves no comp rom ise of 

honesty for only one principle can be 
ethically honest. As students of Masse 
chusetts' only State College, we have a 
future to decide, the future attitude of 
our Alma Mater.

Football and Cross Country Teams Compete 
with Rivals on Amherst Territory 

Next Saturday. tWO Massachusetts 

us compete against Amherst <>u the 

s.ibrina's gridiron and cross-country 

COUfte. The annual encounter of the 

\al football teams is to start at two 

o'clock at Pratt Field and the competing 

harriers are expected to cross the finish 
lie on Pratt Field during the time 
between the halves. 

Both teams have been fairly success- 
iul so far this season, with the JclTmen 

probably having the more enviable 

record. The May State team, however, 
bid* fair to give the Amherst eleven an 
. \hihition of clever football coupled 
with a generous amount of the MaSSS 
chusetts fighting spirit. 

Amherst opened its season with a 
victory over the Conn. Aggie eleven. 
7 to 0, btft met defeat at the hands ol 
Princetoa in their next game. 7 to 0. 
I he JefTmen then took a multi -scoring 
game from Lowell Textile, M to 25, and 

defeated Hamilton, l'1 to ti. Last Satur- 
day, Amherst eked out a 7 to win over 
Uesleyan in the opening encounter of 
i tie "Little Three" series. So far this 

MM, Amherst has accumulated lis 
points to their opponents 38, while the 
-t.ite college has rolled up 66 points ami 
an equivalent number have been scored 
hv its opponents. Although the Sahrinas 
have a very heavy line and a last, shiftv, 
and heavy backtield. the offensive work 
of Holmberg, Brown, Kllert, Kneeland, 
and bond should prove quite antagonistic. 

I lie Massachusetts harriers, with a 

decisive victory over Uesleyan on the 
Middletown course and a loss to Wo r ceste r 

I << h who just nosed the Hay State 
runners out on the Worcester course, are 

it present in a very good condition to 

it the victories of last year over 
Amherst and St. Stephens this year when 
they meet in a triangular meet on the 
Amherst course next Saturday. 

Admission to the Amherst game may

The "Terriers" Under Capt. Karner 
bead Freshman Competition 

In the five weeks that Physical Edu- 
cation (lasses have been held, the I. ions, 

captained by M. H. Wanegar, have 

rolled up 1IH'» |K)ints for an outstanding 
lead in the sophomore competition, while 
the Terriers, led hy Captain L. S. Karner, 
are ahead of the freshman teams with 
76J points. Both classes have played tag 
football for tWO weeks, kick football for 
one week, and cricket for tWO week and 

soccer will be played for the next i iree 
weeks to complete the program. Fresh- 
men get fundamental training in the 
games, and sophomores learn more ad- 
vanced technique. At the end of the 
year, medals will be awarded to mem- 
bers of the winning teams, and a trophy 
will he given to the outstanding freshman 
and sophomore athlete, based on general 
excellence in the contests held this fall. 

The object of the course, is to give 
every man the opportunity to develop 
sufficient control over his body to get 
pleasure from physical activities and thus 
to develop habits of exercise which will 
continue in later life. Habit formation is 
stressed, and this leads to character 
building, leadership, and fellowship.

The real reason why most students

At this time we wish to make a corrcc 
tion of fact in the editorial entitled 

"Justice" which appeared in last week's 
CoUegian. The report to which the edi- 
torial referred as the Land 'Irani College 
Survey Report was mi-leading in the 
fact that the report was, instead, the 
Annual Report to the Department of the 

Interior, Bureau of Ed u ca ti o n , which 
grouped our students in Agriculture. As 

now verified, the report for the Land 
Grant College Survey classified our 
students under four major fields in 

addition to Agriculture. It was believed 

at the time the editorial was contributed 
that the mentioned report concerned the 
one sent to the survey committee. A 

misunderstanding regarding the intended 
request and information granted resulted 
in a misinterpretation of the band Grant 

College Survey Report. We trust that 
our readers have not gained the impression 
that there was deliberate niisie-piesinta- 
tion on the part of the Administration, 
for it was not intended that the editorial 

should convey that idea. 


After the expression of student opinion 
in open forum last week to the effect 
that compulsory chapel should be abol- 
ished, there will be the expectation on 
the pall ot many that action be taken 
by tl;e College administration. As a 
matter of tact, the matter will be seriously 
considered by an executive committee, 
but it tan be ventured here that there 
are serious doubts as to whether the 

present arra ngement will be changed. 
Let us consider what might be the 
reasons for such a decision. 

In a college such as this where there 
are inadequate dormitory facilities, the 
majority of the students seldom see each 
other except at such times when they 
are brought together in a body. It is 
through such means as chapel and 
assembly that they become generally 
acquainted, and a spirit of unity is 
de v el op e d among the student group 
which is necessary to all succe>-tul 

A very slight and non-denominational 
devotional element is included in the 
general program to confer some spiritual 
benefit upon the students, small, perhaps, 
but nevertheless significant in its total. 
That the majority of students desire 
some religious influence in their lives is 

indicated by the fact that in the present 

freshman class, all but four expressed 

some religious preference 

Many individuals contend that they 
get absolutely nothing from morning 
chapel. Perhaps they .ire rght, but is 
this the fault of the exercise itself or 
their attitude towards it? It is worth 
thinking about. Those who have super- 
vision over the period attempt to secure 
speakers who have a real message to 
give to the students. No doubt they fail 
at times, but is it good logic to condemn 
an institution because it is not entirely 

It is true that many colleges do not 
have compulsory chapel, but this is 
usually because of certain inherent 
difficulties and not because of any ob- 
jection to the exercise itself. Many- 
speakers from other colleges who have 
visited this campus have expressed the 
wish that chapel could be made a part 
of their program, but that it was im- 
possible due to the size of the student 


It is with a feeling of pride that this 
institution may regard the "clean bill of 
health" in respect to athletics given to it 
by the Carnegie Foundation as a result 
of its investigation into American college 
athletics. Of the one hundred twelve 
North American colleges and universities 
studied by this body, at only twenty- 
eight was no evidence found that the 
taint of commercialism had crept into 

the athletic programs. Comm erc ialism 

in sport is defined in the Foundation 
report as the placing of a higher value 
upon the monetary and material returns, 
whether direct or indirect, from Iny 
athletic activity than is placed ti|>on its 
return in recreation, health, and physical 
and mental well-being. The report, a 
three hundred eighty-three page bulletin 
representing a thorough study of con- 
ditions, characterizes that condition as 
"the darkest blot on American college 

The firm i>osition in which college 
athletics have entrenched themselves 
does not seem to be quite as impregnable 
as was formerly supposed. The investi- 
gating committee found a "growing 
tendency among undergraduates at many 
American colleges to regard athletics as 
not the only important phase of college 
life," which is considered a very healthy 
sign. It seems likely that those who are 
responsible for the evil conditions may 
regain a sense of proportion and balance 
that will cause them to place emphasis 
on things that rightfully deserve it. We- 
should be thankful that scholastic work 
and athletics at this college have been 
kept in order of their relative importance. 
They both have their place in a well- 
rounded program but the development of 

the intellectual side of the student should 
be- the primary aim.

Speaking of religion, what about

At last Fanny has found she has in-

American girls are the most beautiful in 
the world, which is a great deal easier 
to understand than his last theory." 



For the past two weeks there has been 
a notorious p er son who has taken ad- 
vantage- of "open house" conditions and 
lias made entrances in several of the 
fraternity houses along Pleasant Street 
at the expense of the occupants. The 
first case occurred a week ago Friday 
night, at which time one of the houses 
was entered, the robber taking away 
clothing and money. The second case 
came to our attention last Sunday morn- 
ing. This time two houses were entered 
between midnight and morning. At one 
house the thief escaped with a rather 
large sum of money, while in the other 
instance he was disturbed before he had 
succeeded in completing his intentions; 
therefore, he got nothing in this attempt. 
It is uncertain as to what will be the 
robber's next move, so we must all be 
warned to take the utmost precautions. 
Perhaps there may not be a third time; 
but still caution is the best policy for 
none of us wish to be the next victim. 
It is very unfortunate that such offences 
must occur; yet, there are such people 
in existence who do not believe in honesty 
and the rights of others. 

To the present time there have been 
no clues given to aid in establishing the 
identity of this bold and unlawful charac- 
ter. Then, let us all help in ridding our- 
selves of such people who have no respect 
for law. Stop it before more serious 
offences occur! Therefore, for the interests 
and general welfare of us all it is advisable 
to make an immediate report of any sus- 
picions which may lead to solving the 
two instances sighted or which may 
avoid repetition of such nefarious deeds 
in the future.

Wherein no lives were lost, but some

At last! The football team has a name! 
In an article on the proselyting of athletes 
in American colleges, the Boston Globe 
lists the College as one of the "Sheep." 
On seeing this, Ye Scribe, by intricate 
ratiocinations, has (he thinks) solved the 
name problem and suggests the appelation 
of "The (,ood Shepherds" for the team. 
In reference to the article about the 
"paid athlete," Ye Scribe thought it 
might be a good idea to find out whether 
the Carnegie Foundation's report would 
■fleet the College in any way, so, after 
a little thought, he decided to pay a 
visit to one who is doing his best to make 
the new Physical Education building a 
reality. That gentleman was Professor 

On being asked whether the College 
would be benefited in any way, Professor 
Hicks said in part: 

"I think it will certainly do no harm. 
Surely, when it is known what the 
Carnegie Foundation thinks of our 
Physical Education plant, many of the 
alumni will be moved to help out more 
than they have in order to see better 
facilities here. You'd be surprised to 
hear what the advance report said." 

"Won't you please tell me what it 
said?" asked the Scribe. 

"Well, if you want it, here it is. It 
says: 'One barn-like structure for basket- 
ball, entirely inadequate indoor facili- 
ties.' I am anxious to await the full 
report concerning the College. This 
ought to be of great help in understand- 
ing how other |M?ople see our needs." 

"What is the present project that the 
Building Committee is tarrying on?" 

"You see, it's this way. A few weeks 
ago, the Committee on Administration 
and Finance in Boston consented to 
match, dollar for dollar, any amount 
that the alumni could raise. Now, the 
plan is to get the sum of $17f>,(MH) in 
before Decem b e r ■**<> of this year. Why? 
because the legislature convenes in 
January and if we can get the appropri- 
ation put into the G overn o r's budget, 
the whole thing will go through without 
a hitch. But, if it does not go in that 
way, it will be- ne . e-ssary to put it in is 
a special approp ria tion which may take 
years to get by the legislature inasmuch 
as we have a half a million dollar building 
program already before the body.'' 

"President Thatcher and Mr. Whit more 
have both said that the student agitation 
for the change of name is detrimental to 
your cause. Can you tell me wherein it 

"Well, a change of name might help 
the cause, but, names cannot be changed 
in a day and at the present time, I really 
do think that the students should let t he- 
agitation go for a while until we were at 
least certain of getting our new buildings 
and improvements. Don't think that 
we are against a new name. The trustees 
and President Thatcher are really inter- 
ested in the propositi. Give them time 
and they'll do all that is feasible. In the 
meantime, why doesn't the student body 
sell itself to the New Physical Education 
Building Campaign and devote itself to 
spreading the information to the people 
of the state? First, get your people 
interested in the College, then try to 
change the name, if it's the best thing to 

"What can the students do then?" 
queried Ye Scribe. 

"(io out and broadcast our motto: 
Every Dollar Contributed Means Two 
for the Building."

To the Fditor of the Collegian: 

Thought you might be interested n 
news of a few of the recent graduates • 
MAC. in Vermont. On October 10, 11 
and 12, the Vermont State teache i 

convention was held in Burlington 

During that time I ran into several 
Aggie men and certainly had a mod 
interesting time. 

1 was very fortunate in obtaining 
room in the home of Lewell S. Walker, 
M.A.C class of '(X\. Ik- is now at the 
University of Vermont in charge of the 

feeds and fertilizer testing service. Hil 
son, "Red" Walker, M.A.C. ex'L'«». 
his B.S. at Vermont last June, lb 
now a frosh at the College of Medic in. 
"Red" spends most of his time studying, 
strange as it may seem. He hardly had 
time to talk with me all during niv 
three days stay. He says that if hil 
nerve holds out, he is going to the Missouri 
School of Osteopathy when he gets hil 

I soon found that Charlie Leonard 
M.A.C. '27, was boarding with th. 
Walkers. He still has a Ford (and a 1023 
at that). He says that he may get ,i 
g<K)d car in June when he gets his degre 
in chemistry. Charlie seems to have 
changed. He has sobered down and 
seems to be dividing his time between 
sleeping and studying, with emphasi- 
the former. 

During the first session of the conven- 
tion, I met Fiank Bean, M.A.C. '2*i. lie- 
and his wife are living in Fairfax, Vt . 
where he is supervising principal of tin 

Bellows Free Academy, 

Then I ran into Bill Parkin of the dan 
of "27. He taught "related sciences" ,u 
Essex Aggie for two years and is now 
principal of the high school at Wed 
I'avvlett, Vt. His friends may be int. 
ested to know that he has finally traded 
in his old Ford. He now has a new

Leaving Burlington, I Stopped e>ff in 

Charlotte to hunt up Willis Sherman "28, 

who is landscape architect for the- Hoi- 
Ion I Nurseries. Bill was not at home but 
I found that he was working in Manchesl

I stopped at Manchester and looked him 

up. Lo, I found him in overalls, on hi- 
kne-c-s, packing dirt about the root- ol i 
newly planted perennial. There i> I

Bill is getting along well, still lorn

A vote of confidence was next given 

the editor-in-chief of the CoUegjfau, Lewis

A few yean ago I ieorge ( rwen astounded 

the followers of America's "greatest 
college sport" with the heretical state- 
ment that he had not enjoyed his three 
years of vanity football at Harvard and 
that be had found the game more drud- 
gery than I tin. Since Owen was a notably 
line player and as he had been a member 
nt winning teams, his opinion could not 
be ignored on the grounds it was "sour 
grapes." College and school executives 
and (on lies were moved to examine their 
sWeins Oi football training and several 
were sufficiently broad-minded to admit 
that Owen was at least half rigbt and re- 
organised their rout im- accordingly. 

It would be far from the truth to say 
that Owen's remarks revolutionized col- 
lege football, for they didn't. Most 
COachet still have to produce winning 
teams if they are to continue to receive' 
their salaries, and winning teams arc- 
built more on emotional determination 
than on good-humored s|>ortsmanship. 
Mut there have been definite efforts to 
relieve the monotony of "training in the 
fundamentals" by introducing casual 
competitive features which are more like 
intro-tnural sport than organized prepa- 
ration to meet an outside "enemy." 

Arthur (".. Sampson, the coach at 
Tufts, is probably the leader in this 
vicinity of this new phase of football. 
He demands of his squad only the mini- 
mum amount of tiresome conditioning 
drills and monotonous practice such as 
falling on the ball and tackling the 
dummy. By means of tag football he 
develops the boys' natural instincts for 
the game and stimulates their love of 

keen competition. Tag football, an 

excellent name in itself, requires nearly 
all the talents needed in the orthodox 
game, without the dangers of bodily 
contact. It is not so exciting from the 
spectator's itandpoint, but is much more 
enjoyable to play. Incidentally, Tufts 
won its first regular game of the season 

last Saturday, defeating Colby. 12 to d. 

Ilorween at Harvard has introduced 
similar innovations, although he is more 

conservative than Sampson, and other 

coaches throughout the country are 
making experiments. The thing to re- 
member is that college football is plaved 
lor the benefit of the students participat- 
ing, not for their classmates in the 
■tends, not lor the alumni, and not for 

the possible enlargement of the endow- 
ment fund. The boys have fought long 
enough for "dear old Alma Mater." It 
is time that "dear old \lma Mater" did 
a little hunting for her sons.

were escorted, blindfolded and utterly 
ignorant of the fate which was in store 
for them, to the home of Floretta

lowed a really "spooky" initiation, in 
the dim caverns of the Brainard barn, 
which proved to be an hour of mental 
agony for the victims. Supper was 
served, upon their recovery, and the 
evening was given over to an impromptu

|fr > he presented a lantern-slide 

'al on the poets of Amherst. 

Illustrating his thought by appropriate 

vcr-es and by a -'tics of beautifully 

colored projector-slides, many of which 
were made by Professor F. A. Waugh , 

Professor F. P. Rand acted as tin- gpeakei 
for the Assembly last Thursday after- 
noon. Taking as a bast! for his thought 
the observation that "New England is 
the- abandoned farm of American litera- 
ture," Professor band delved into the 
history of Amherst, and brought out to 
present to the College his "Amherst 

Son^ Bag." No town, with the ezceptil n 

of Concord, Mass., his finer literary

(Kjets have- walked cm and written of the 
streets ot this town. 

The first writer which Professor Rand 
considered was Dr. J. C Holland, for 

whom Holland Gkn is named. Dr. 

Holland's verse "Kathrina" was read, 
and the accompanying slide- pictured a 
shady garden. Eugene Field was the 
next poet of wh« ii Professor Kami spoke, 
reading four of field's verses, namely 
"Dooley," "The bell Flower Tret 
"Mary Smith," and "My Playmate," 
accompanied by slides of Mrs. Fmerson's 
house the oldest house in Amherst, of 
i he- Holyoke Range, of a bird's-eye view 
of Amherst, and of the beautiful Elder 
House, in which field, Jones and other 
beloved writers lived.

The news that definite step* have been 
taken to provide this college with much 

needed equipment and facilities should 
come as welcome information to all stu- 
dents, workers, and friends of the insti- 
tution. That the coining improvements 
are necessary cannot he denied. The work 
of the Physic* Department, for instance, 

has been hindered hy the inade qu a t e old 

building which at present houses it. 
Home economics has outgrown its limited 
quarters and must have more room and 

increased conveniences to carry on the 

work it is doing. It is the same with 
several other departments on the cam- 
pus. They are now doing their work 
with equipment that might have answered 
the purpose a number of years ago, but 
which is now obsolete. What better 
form of encouragement could we have, 
what more reason for optimism for the 
future of this college could we find, than 
the realization that our needs are recog- 
nized and are to be attended to? In 1926

1001 PROFIT 

Opportunity which has never before 

Entered as second-class matnr at the Amhent |a program similar to the present one was 

presented to the chairman of the State 
Commission on Administration and Fi- 
ll. nice, but only one major item of that 
program has been provided along with 
a very few minor items. 

What does this mean to the under- 
graduates of this college? We will have 
increased facilities at our disposal that 
will offer us many new opportunities. 
Fewer limitations will be placed on our 
work and we will have many advantages 
that have always been desirable but have 
hitherto been lacking. We shall not feel 
obliged to apologize for any aged equip- 
ment but will be on a par with the newer 

Whereas in the past, building equip- 
ment has been provided for the research 
work of the ex|*eriment station, and for 
control service laboratories by encroach- 
ment upon the space originally devoted 
to resident teaching, new facilities will 
Ite planned for their use which will open 
new fields to them. 

Those who are now attending this 
college should consider themselves fortu- 
nate indeed, since theirs is the good 
fortune to be here at what might be 
called the dawn of a new era in the 
history of M.A.C. 

come to an undergraduate body of this 
College is now here. During the past lew 
Weeks we have all heard of the assurance 
of State support for the new Physical 
Education Building; and yet, little do 
we seem to realize and consider the crisis 
which is now at hand. We are taking the 
project either as an assured step toward 
better facilities here on campus, or else 
we are unaware of the p res ent state of 
circumstances. Whatever may be the 
current student opinion toward the 
project there are a few points which need 
mentioning. To be sure, State support is 
certain and a dollar invested now by 
alumni, students, and friends of the 
College, means another dollar guaranteed 
by the State. In other words, here is a 
chance for one hundred jK-rcent profit! 

If the contributions total to $175,000 
by December 30, the State will match 
dollar for dollar to bring the proceeds 
up to 1860,000, making the building a 
reality and one of the best physical edu- 
cation buildings in the country. Perhaps 
we may say, "Well, we have only $70,000 
so what impression will my five 
ars make?" To this we replay, "It 
I do a great deal. Five dollars now 
ans five more dollars by January. It 
m practically assured that if the total 
funds reach $17f>,(H)0 by the last of 
December, the ground for the new edifice 
of learning will be broken this coming 
summer. Does not that mean a great 
deal to us when we realize that such a 
goal is within reaching distance, that we 
will see the new building before we 
graduate, that we will enjoy its facilities 
before we leave our Alma Mater? We 
realize that this project is foremost in 
the student's mind, so we ask merely for 
their enthusiasm, their willingness to help 
in the present crisis. Only seven more 
weeks remain, in which time we may 
render our assistance and reap the in- 
valuable reward. For months Professor 
Curry S. Hicks, vice chairman of the 
committee, has been cxi>cncling his ut- 
most energy in this project which is so 
hopeful at the present time. We can 
express our interest, offer our assistance, 
and show our enthusiasm right now in 
this crisis. If we have not made our 
contribution, now is the time to do so 
when one hundred percent profit is 

Now, what part may we play in this 
project? In the first place, we may 
contribute our little but grateful bil of 
financial aid. In the second place, we 
should interest and persuade others to 
contribute. Soon there is a letter con- 
taming a request to be -cut to parents 
of the alumni and students of the College. 
A good word, a small request on our part. 
an exhibition of interest, enthusiasm, and 
above all a little encouragement given to 
Dad may increase the contributions con- 
siderably. At least, such things will 
show the student attitude and backing 
in the project. Since interest cm the part 
of the student body has a great im- 
portance in influencing possible large 
contributions, this is our part in the 

Remember, we want the ground for the 
new building broken next summer, so 
let us gel busy and uive the project a 

boost right now. In the final analysis 

we owe it to OOTSeiveS in recognition for 

the wonderful opportunities which have 
come and which will come in the future 
to our College.

U?e Scribe 

"// is the best of all trade* to make songs, 
and the second best to sing them." Helloc. 

Some time ago, Ye Scribe was told that 
it certainly was a bad thing how college 
singing had degraded since the "good old 
days" when singing was singing and not 
the whisperings of a few timid souls. 
Now, after hearing the weak attempts of 
the students at the Amherst game, he is 
inclined to believe that his informant 
was not very far from wrong. To see if 
anything could be found out about such 
a situation, Ye Scribe thought he'd pay 
that well-known student of music, Dr. 
Davis, a visit. Fungi and mosses do not 
jibe with arias and fugues but Dr. Davis 
had some very enlightening co m me n ts to 
make on the subject of music as it con- 
cerns this College.

Scene: A fraternity house during the 
burglar scare. 

Plot: It is about 2 a. m. Several of 
the brothers are sleeping on the first 
floor, armed to catch the marauder. A 
slight sound is heard on the second floor. 
One of the group awakens. He listens 
intently. The scuffling is repeated. 
Silently he nudges his companions. All 
arise quickly and seize their weapons — 
a shot-gun, a revolver, an R.O.T.C. 
saber, and a heavy army shoe. Cautiously 
very cautiously, they creep up the stairs, 
skipping the third stair because it creaks. 
Meanwhile the groping sounds continue. 
The group reaches the landing; they 
spread out like a fan; the leader fumbles 
with his flashlight. Then, "Halt!" he 
cries, and flashes a steam of light on — 
a sleepy, shivering brother in pajamas, 
looking for the bathroom! 
Believe it or not, it is our story, and 
we'll stick to it.

Some of our recently graduated men

As the young frosh said to the beaker 
as he put it on the Bunsen Burner: "No

Cela Suffit. 

"Many things," he replied. "We need 
almost a brand new set of songs to start 
with; we need some good snappy stings 
with catchy tunes, we need comedy, and 
we need more classic. The songs we lack 
the most are martial patriotic songs 
which would bring the valley, the College 
and the new democratic spirit of the 
institution into prominence. We have 
plenty to sing about." 

"What, in your opinion, makes a song 
or a cheer good?" 

"Spontaneity, of course. A football 
game is the ideal place for a good song. 
However, let me ask you a question: 
How do you expect a student body to 
know how to sing when it has had hardly 
any training? Well, you can't expect 
much, can you? I would suggest that, 
at stated times, there ought to be a 
professional organist come up here to 
take over chapels and give the student 
body a little instruction in singing. 
Don't you have a great many teachers 
to show you how to do this and that all 
through your college life? Three chapel 
sessions a term given over to singing songs 
correctly— in time and with different 
parts surely would improve the situa- 
tion immensely. You know, most every 
college anil university gives instruction 
in music and singing." 

"Have you any suggestions about 
getting new songs?" asked Ye Scribe. 

"Yes. Each year, I would continue to 
give some sort of a prize to anyone con- 
tributing a poem or music. Once you 
have a poem it's easy to get music for 
it. And, I would let everybody take a 
hand in it. Someone in this College- 
must be able to give what we want and 


"Do you think of any way the singing 
at games would be more effective?" 

"Indeed! I think it would be a good 
idea to sing the Alma Mater before the 
game, just before the first whistle blows. 
Then, if we win a good, jolly tune could 
be sung afterwards. If we lose, the Alma 
Mater could be sung over again to show 
that we are still as loyal as ever." 

"Have you any other suggestions you 
couhl make?" queried Ye Seribe-. 

"Well, I think there is talent in this 
College but we lack leadership and in- 
struction. Everyone knows, you know,

In preparation for the game with 
Pittsfield High School next Saturday, 
the Stockbridge football team played a 
practise game with the Amherst College 
freshmen last Friday, and won by the 
score of 7 to 0. The touchdown came in 
the second period when Wet-man struck 
off tackle to score after the ball had been 
rushed from midfield. Hueg pushed the 
ball over the line for the extra potttt. A 
good defense by the Amherst freshmen 
inside their 20-yard line prevented two 
more scores. Stockbridge rushed the ball 
for steady gains throughout the game-

week-end to between forty and fifty 
alumni who returned to gather with K.K. 
in its annual fall house parly and banquet . 
The house dance was held Friday evening, 
November 1, with over KM) people present . 
The dance was a great success, thanks to 
the weather man who provided a warm 
night thereby making the porches very

Weston Smith, Jr. S'31, and Charles 
Holinan S'30, who gave liberally of their 
time and effort. The K.K. house was 
very cleverly decorated to give the 
Hallowe'en atmosphere. Mr. and Mrs. 
Harold Smart and Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth 
E. Wright acted as chaperones. Corsage a 
were provided for the ladies and a snapp\ , 
five-piece orchestra furnisheel the music 
The dance broke up soon after eleven si

Class hostilities between the freshmen 
and sophomore camps were suspended for 
awhile last Wednesday evening, October 
30, when the combined groups enjoyed a 
little Hallowe'en Party in the Memorial 
Building. The 175 "frollicers" who 
attended played appropriate games of 
various sorts, partook of varittus refresh- 
ments, and whirled in various dances to 
the music of a volunteer orchestra drawn 
from the two classes. 

There were some feature performances 
of the evening, the first of which was a 
reading, given by Miss Mildred Twis-*

by Miss Muriel Bicatte *88. Particularly

As (off Alpha C.amma Rho, they "spun"

nence, and the achievement of professional 

leadership. For these object i\e-s people 

will often pay a great price, that of self- 
sacrifice to the paint of sheer hardship. 
The problem arises from the fact that, 

however gruelling may be the effort 

toward that goal of success, many never 

reach it, and in time all are forced to 

relinquish it- Despair and discouragement 
overwhelm those who come face to face 
with such failures, but the despera tion 

is needless, could they only gain a new 

perspective of success, an insight which 
Dr. Gilkey immediately tried to surest. 
First, failure is often sensed by mone- 
tary comparisons which are not sound. 

People are thoughtlessly prone to com- 
pare- themselves to persons who have 

reached success under entirely different 
conditions from themselves. To get •> 
true itlea of ones success, comparisons 
must be made with a person of similar 

past circumstances. Secondly, it must 

be borne in mind that ones own past 
records and statistics reviewed in the 
light of those e>f the present, are not a 
true index of his failures, because they 
are always subject to the effects of tir- 

cumstances over which then- is no con- 
trol. Thirdly, it must be reali/cd that 
the sources of happiness, two of which 
are friendship, and the thrill of following 
an occupation, are free and open to all, 
successful in the modern sense or not. 

The foregoing being applicable to any 
faith, Dr. C.ilkey concluded by bringing

permanent suteess, for "the first shall be 
last, and the last shall be first."

College Athletics, the Carnegie Founda- 
tion for the Advancement of Teaching 

has made a special report to I'resident 

Roscos W. Thatcher, regarding condi- 
tions which were found existing at out 

College. The following statement was 

made by Dr. Howard J. Savage of the 
Carnegie Foundation in a letter to 
President Thatcher. 

"From the field upon on the Maass 
chusctts Agricultural College, made by 
our representatives, a trained observer of 
wide experience in such matters, it 
appears thai it waa in effect his judgment 
that 'with no gymnasium and makeshift 
locker and dressing rooms little encourage- 
meat can be k>^<ii to general and intra- 
mural athletics. Those participating can 
not be required to change clothes and 

those who do change, including freshmen 

squads, change in a barnlike structure.' 

Bui ' ret;, in I less ol t he sad lark ol apparatus 
and a gymnasium Professor Hicks has 

made progress. . . An effort is made to 

keep standards of scholarship and eligi- 
bility high.' In these judgments I ((incur. 

"I need not point out that serviceable 
and fairly adequate, but not luxurious. 
facilities are, in our judgment, necessary 

for the development of those intramural 
outdoor sports which should play an 
important part in the recreation and the 

informal education of undergraduates. 

"On April 17, 1929 a summary of in- 
formation collected for our American 
athletic enquiry at the Massachusetts 

Agricultural College was sent to you 
Confidentially, after careful consideration, 
in which it was stated that indoor facili- 
ties for athletics were entirely inade- 
quate,' and that 'the problem is to get 

adequate facilities for physical education 

work, expei ially intramural athletics. 1 I 

believe that I am right In informing you 

that the facilities for indoor athletics 
and for dressing, bathing, etc., at the 

Massachusetts Agricultural College stand 
among the least adequate of any at the 

one hundred and twelve institutions of 
the United Stales and Canada visited 

for the athletic enquiry of the Carnegie 

Foundation. They certainly contrast 

sharply and unfavorably with those at 

many other state- institutions." 

Certainly such a statement drives home 
the fad that we do need this new build 

ing. It also emphasises our deficiencies 

in facilities and equipment in comparison 
with one hundred and eleven other 

We have only a few more weeks to 
make our dieains come true to bring 
our total contributions up to $17">,IMlll. 
Can it be done? Of course it is possible 
if we all use profitably our influence, our 
interest in our College. Just think what 
it means to have this new building the 
pride of our Campus, one of the best of 
its type among nil American colleges It 
is nearly within our grasp so let's give it 
every bit ol the backing which it right- 
fully deserves as the great contribution 
to our "Alma Mater." 


'The present demonstration of student 
interest in the Physical Education Build- 
ing program is, to our way of thinking. 

something that will greatly assist the 

committee in charge of that project, and, 

from all appearances, it looks as though 

what this campaign lacks in time will be 
made- up in enthusiasm. The value of a 
Student campaign at this time may be ol 
questionable character since it is clear 
that no Substantial financial contribution 
can come from that source. However, 
there is another contribution of an en- 
tirely different sort that of moral sup 
port which will help bring the plans a 
great deal nearer to realisation. The point 

ol the matter is that the student body 
has settled into a somewhat lethargic 
state alter the first exhibition of en 
thusiasm and seems to have taken the 

building for granted. People outside the 

college have mistaken this attitude lor 
one- of disinterest and it has acted as a 
damper on their own interest. 

We undergraduates know this is a 
false impression and it is up to us to 
"tell the- world" that we- do want the 
building and want it badly. It is possible 
to do this in many ways, and the plan 
as outlined elsewhere in this paper can 
well serve the purpose- in spite of the l.u t 
that tin- time remaining is very limited. 

The- essay contest should stimulate 
many students to think of the numerous 
benefits that will be derived by the 
college- from the- new athletic center, and 
the competition between the various 
fraternities and dormitories should help 
to increase the number of contributors 
to the fund materially. The relative 
standings of these organizations will lie 

published at frequent intervals. 
An "all-college" pep banquet to be 

held Saturday evening will undoubtedly 
be one of the highlights of the campaign 
and will reflect the student opinion much 
better than words. 

Everybody must get behind this 
proposition and push. When you go 
home f ir Thanksgiving recess talk about 
it. Get worked up over it. Think what 
it will means to those students who come 
here after you leave. Think what an 
enormous boost it will be to this old 
college of ours. No matter what happens, 
this project must be put across.

of the many tasks connected with pro-

Although laboring under the handicap 
of scarcity of funds, clue to the low prize- 
of the Index and to the difficulty of 
securing advertisements, the 1931 board 
feels that it will be able to offer the 
students some novel innovations that 
will materially improve the book over 
that of past years. Just how numerous 
and radical these changes will be depends 
entirely upon the amount allowed by the 
budget, and the business board is eloine,

Cela Soffit, 

From Bombay, "The (.ate of India," 
to Mount Everest cm the north, from 
bleak Burma on the east to the wilds of 
Afganistan on the west, the Indian 
Empire holds svvav under British rule. 
'This is the fatherland of many different 
peoples, races, cults and tribes. Still, 
they are under one rule and sovereignty. 

In Bombay, important city of the east, 

there is a mingling and a mixing of two 
great civ ilizat ions, the materialism of the 
West and the mysticism of the Fast. It 
was in this great city some forty years or 
so ago that Doctor Mhaskar P. Hivale-, 
last 'Thursday's assembly Speaker, was 
born. Here he was brought up in a 
family that was progressive as far as 

adopting Western methods was con- 
cerned. Such a bringing up as his parents 
gave him did a gieat deal towards making 
him the eager student of Western culture 

that he now is. As a representative of a 

grout) of Hindus who are aiming to make 
a better India, he stands as one of t he- 
first in his knowledge of the international 
political situations which India is con- 

Having heard Dr. Ilivale spe-ak one e 
before, Y« Scribe knew beforehand that 
here- was a good opportunity for an inter- 
view. With the typical boldness of a 

r ep rese n tative ol the press, Ye Scribe 

succeeded in conversing for a time with 
this wonderful man from the Fast. 

According to Dr. Hivale, Hindu uni- 
versity life is not much different from 
that of English universities. In fact, the 

University of Bombay is patterned after 

Oxford University. Just as in America, 
the colleges of the University are given 
OVCf to certain arts and sciences and, like 
American colleges as a whole, they have 
a tendency to stress specialization to too 
great an extent. The Doctor's belief in 
what a college education ought to be is 

that college life should be only a prepara- 
tion for the student for the work he has 
to do in life and not the learning of a 
mass of facts and rules. This preparation 
is the learning of the use of one's brain 
and reliance on the individual for judg- 
ment in any situation. 

Ghandi, the modern Hindu prophet, 

has done many good and bad things for 
the Hindu race, is Dr. Hivalc's opinion. 
He- has Stopped the mad rush ol main 
people who thought that only the Western 
civilization had good things in it. In 
his radical reforms, he has advocated t he- 
return to the ancient Hindu civilization 
which, according to the Doctor, had a 
good stock of valuable things. However, 
the Doctor regards the poet Tagoi'e's 
school as the one which is doing much 
more towards bringing India to the- front 
in modern science and thought. 'This 
school, going on the advance conviction 
that there is something of value in both 
the Eastern and Western civilizations, 
has been trying to bring about a fusion 
of the best thoughts, ideas and habits 
of both to make India far ahead of those 
lacking the chance to do this. 

India is the land of the beautiful and 
the ugly. Its beauties are- inc omparal le. 
A visitor is well-repaid if he s|miic|s a 
period in this ancient land. Mount 
Everest, the Taj Mahal. Delhi, the Kutub 
Minar, the Pearl Mosque, the Divan i am 
and a host of other beautiful -int\ inter- 
esting sights more than offset the Ugly. 
They are a wonderful source of inspiration 
to anyone. Soon Dr. Ilivaic- will be re- 
turning to his country but he will alvvavs 
love, he s.iv s, one of the- greatest countries 
in the world, the- United States.

such as the- talk given hy Dean II. I.. 
Walstef of North Dakota on "Relation 
of Fundamental Science- Departments to 
the Agricultural Curriculum." 

A fitting climax to these meetings was 
the gathering of Thursday morning, it 
which then- were six members of the 
Farm l-oan Board) including Chairman 
l.egge, Messrs. J. C. Stone, C. C. league, 
ami C. S. Wilson. The harm Loan 
board has at its disposal seven hundred 
million dollars for farm aid for the 
coining year, and the members were 
present to give their ideas upon the ways 
in which this money should he spent. The 
principal speaker e>f the meeting was the 
Hon. Secretary of Agriculture, Arthur 
M. Hyde-. His remedy for the farm 
situation of the present time was the 
cutting out of the "marginal farmer," 
who kept on raising his inferior stock to 
crowd the- better quality goods into 
suicidal price cutting. I lis diagnosis of 
the- illness of agriculture at the present 
time- was "over-expansion." The farmers 
are raising more than enough to supply 
the- needs of the country and the foreign 
export, so the land of the po o r es t of the 
crops should be given over to re fo rest 
ation, or some other equally likely oecu- 
pat ion. 

A decidedly human touch was given 
the meeting by tin- announcement of the 

death of Dr. Allen, who was scheduled to 
read a tribute to Dr. True, Dr. Allen is 
a graduate ot Massachusetts in the class 

of 1885.

the orchestra was Nicolas Sloniinsky. and 
particularly outstanding of the instru- 
mentalists was GastOO Elcus, first vio- 
linist and concert master. 

Mendelssohn's "Overture Ftngul's 
Cave" was the- first number played. Slow , 
and with fine expression the full orchestra 
drew a vivid picture of the cave: the deep, 
rolling tympani and Stringed bass giving 
t he- sense of massive depths, and the 
clarinet and flute pointing out impressive 
features in the winding passages. Mac- 
Howell's "Woodland Sketches" came 
next. Included in this group were the 
familiar, sweet "To a Wild Rose," the 
somber, meditative "From an Indian 

Lodge," and the fast, rag-time "Uncle 


For this College it was a rare occasion 
to hear and see so pleasing and mellow a 
soprano as Miss ( .ert rude Hhrhart sinning 
an aria accompanied by full orchestra. 
I lei first selection was the slow, remi- 
niscent "I'n bel cli vedremo from Madame 
Butterfly" by Puccini. 

Honegger's "Suite Napoleon" followed, 

the first number of which was the martial 

"Napoleon." Slow, and song like, with 

prominence in the strings and the clarinet , 

MM the "Chaconne cle l'lmperat rie e\" 

Accompanied by the' plucking of the bass 

viol, and liy the trilling of the flute, the 
violins, leci by Mr. Klcus. merited and 
received Spec ial applause' lor the- melodious 

"I. a Romance cle Violins." Shimmering, 
joyful, and refreshing was the "Danse des 

Knlants," made rollicking and staccato 
by the plucking of the st rim's, and t he- 
trilling of the flute. 

The- tenth composition of the afternoon 
was "Selection from Samson and Delilah" 
by Saint -Sacns. Featuring in this slow 
ami sweet movement were the Stiinert 
piano, the chimes, the- plucking e>f the 

strings, and the crashing of the tympani, 

producing a very effective music picture-. 

One- of the features of the- program was 

the- expert performance of the string 
eiuartet which played three- numbers: t he- 
soft . meditative "Andante- from Quartet" 

by Tsehaikowsky; the singing, waltz 
like "En Sourdine" by Te-llam; and the 
delicate-, tripping "Minuet*' by Raccherini. 
The audience was pleased again by the 
appearance of Miss Khrhart who sang 
three si-lection from Schubert, namely 
"Who is Sylvia," a lovely lyric; "Stand- 

chc-n," a soft, suppressed, familiar melody; 
and Hark. 1 1. irk the Lark." a delicate-. 
and beautiful song. Si enthusiast k w.,s 
the audience with the soprano's perform- 
ance-, and with the orchestra's fine- ac- 
companiment that an encore- was given. 
"Dreams." a selection from Wagmr. 
was the- next choice- of the- orchestra. 
With the completion o! this slow, quiet 
number, featuring the undertone of the 
murmuring tympani. the master musicians 
entered upon the last group of compost- 
tkms on the- program, called "The Nut- 
cracker Suite," by Tsehaikowsky. The 
deliberate, quiet, Indian-like "la Danse 
Arabe," featuring the- measured accom- 
paniment, and the- clicking rattles, came- 
first. Pulsating, accented by the marked 

bass, was the "I. a Danse Chinoise," 

made- oriental throughout by the trilling 
flute. With the loud rolling of tympani 
the program was brought to a dose bj 
the martial "la Danse Russe." a move- 
ment oi which was repeated in encore-.

$100. Mere is found the bold but line-

Further discussion of individual prints 
cannot here be given. To the sympathetic

are several pictures of fine architecture 
among which is Kby's "St. (Juen Rouen," 
many landscapes, of which llassam's 
"Vermont Village" is well representative, 
several nature pictures among which is

appealing are the many "impressionistic"

Old ideals and customs were thrust i 
worthless, while western culture wa- 

cepted in its entirety. 
As rapidly as they received the net 

civilization the- Indians have recently 
been abandoning it, by reason ot 
extreme materialism, some factions 
advocating a return to the olde-st eastera 
ideals and culture. There still remain- d 
school of philosophy in India, however 
led by Dr. Tagore, which sees the va 
of western ieleals, and is working tOV 
the union of the East and the W>-, 

keeping the- best elements of each. 
Dr. Hivale explained that the highesj 

ideal of India, and the gre-atest contribu- 
tion it could make to the united culture 
is the principle of meditation. India 
believes that man is a slave to the world, 
and that his only salvation is attained b) 

his getting away from worldly possession! 

and back to nature. He must give up 
everything in the- latter part of his hie, 
get control over his body, and go deep 

into his soul foi meditation. 

From his wide- experience, Dr. II 
believes that the- highest ideal of the- Wesl 

is the principle of service. "It is a beauti- 
ful ideal; it is valuable; but it is BOf 
best. It is incomplete; not durable 

our strength is limited ; ami too worldh 
The saving ot time means too much to 
the West." In c losing, Dr. Hivah 

with his audience the plea thai twentj 
minutes per day of deep meditation 

whether .inv God is belie-ved in 01 

would enable it to incorporate in its 

culture the great ideal of the- East.

the inllue-nce- ol Christianity is enormous 
and ever im reasing. 
I Man's obligation to religion in general 

is that it is ".ill up in the air," an idea 
arising from the (lithe ultv ol submitting 
it to our own tests ami ramifications. 
Mohammedanism and Hinduism suffer 
badly in this respect, but Christianity 

has been te-sted and examined uninen i

Say that the one and onlv defect ol the-

it requires. In conclusion, Dr. Speer said:

At this College we have in operation al 
the preaenl time an Honor System which 

we believe is working very effectively. 

The fad thai during each year there are 
only a lew cases brought before the Honor 

Council might be evidence that the system 

is not working. However, this is not the 
riv;ht interpretation, for a small per 

centage of eases, most of them dealing 

with minor charges, shows clearly that the 

system is operating successfully. It points 

as evidence to the high standard of honor 
which is prevalent among the students. 

Daring the past few weeks ■ number 
of colleges in the United States have 
either abolished or installed the- system. 
Others are trying to improve their sys- 
tems. All in all, there seems to be a 
difference in opinion and much contro- 
versy regarding the success of an Honor 
System at some coilegea In a statistical 
survey made not so long ago il was re- 
ported that there were one hundred and 
sixty American colleges and universities 
using the Honor System. Thirty-six per- 
cent of the colleges in the northeastern 
group reported usin it. M.A.C. iscertainly 

Of the Honor Svsti which we received 

as freshmen. There may be numerous 

Wayi to utile the present pledge and 
implv the same meaning; yet, there il 
one and only one collect way to wold it. 
Before COnaidei ing a change in the pledge 
now used, why not learn how to wtile it 
i oi rectly? 


To express it dearly and frankly, the 
sinking .tt this college is "tOUgh," and 
does not seem to lie showing any sie,ns 

oi improvement. This is one observation 

that many returning alumni have made' 
though it does not requite an alumnus to 
notice it and, while- suggestions of 
alumni are usually to he taken with a 
grain of salt, we might profit much 1>\ 
^i\ inn heed to this. 

A number of years ago, we understand, 
singing was ven, common to this campus. 

There was considerable group singing, 

and any number ol students who could, 
would, anil did sing m small groups on 
the- slightest provocation. As a re-sult, all 
the- students knew the- solids and with 

this came the inevitable increase of 

interest in the institution whose- prai-cs 

thej s.iiik Whatever the type of souks 
they sang, it always lent a feeling of 

friendliness and good e beer to the- college 
which is quite an important factor in its 
makeup. If we don't have- this fe-eling 
when we- sing now it is because- we elo not 
enter into it in the ri^lit frame of mind. 

Within the- memory of the present 
seniors, even, there was a time when 
sinking occupied a place of much greater 
importance- than it eloes now. Three 
years ago an effort was made to stimulate 
interest by obtaining someone from out- 
side to try to infuse us with the spirit 
ol sonn. Receiving no further attention 
the enthusiasm soon died, though its 
results were in evidence at the Amherst 
football games the two following years. 

We don't need an outside source of 
inspiration. We have many good songs 
and lots of good voices. They need only 
to be- used. Why not try? It will make 
a big difference. 


U?e Scribe 

Campus Debris 



Since a great many of us, even in such 
an intellectual environment as a college 
possesses, must pay some attention to 
material matters, it is in nowise a mark 

of degeneration for us to discuss a subject 
in this group, for here it is not only being lalemg these lines. 

useel but it is also working effectively. 

Nevertheless, perhaps there are many 
improvements possible in our system. 
Before discussing any improvements, how- 
ever, let us ask two questions. What 
purpose has the Honor System? What 
are its benefits? We answer these ques- 
tions by stating that in the first place, 
it instills in the students a rcs|>cct for 
honest dealings one with the other. This 
is certainly a vital force in character 
building. In the second place-, the 
Honor System furnished the student with 
strong, lasting principles of good e itizen- 
ship that will serve him later in life. In 
our opinion these enclose the purpose and 
benefits of the Honor System. Then, 
there are numerous other benefits derived 
daily in a student's life, which have in- 
direct reference to the principles involved 
in the system. 

Now, can we improve the present 
Honor System? Yes, so far as we all 
understand thoroughly its constitution 
and by-laws. Would the one word 
"Pledge" ami a student's signature he as 
effective as the pledge used at the present 
time? That question remains to be 
settled later. In the meantime, perhaps, 
it would he a good idea for all of us to 

Previous to last year a number of 
students depended upon money earned 
during the few clays before Christmas to 
replenish their usually depleted ex- 
chequor. The strains of a term are con- 
siderable on the average purse, even 
though it may have been reinforced by 
summer earnings. Now, however, with 
college work extending up to four days 
before Christmas it is impossible for 
many to obtain temporary employment 
and get that additional income. The 
reason for this is obvious. Most of the 
t em porary employment is occasioned by 
the- extra tax placed upon Uncle Sam's 
mail facilities and by the attack upon 
retail stores. It so happens that the peak 
of the busy season is reached a short time 
before our recess starts, thus making it 
very difficult to se-cure employment. 

Why would it not be possible to return 
to the ohl system of completing the 
term's work a few days earlier so that 
those students who do wish to convert 
their time into money may do so? If 
this would necessitate cutting out a 
whole week's work, by all means let us 
disregard the suggestion put forth in this 
article, but if it is merely a matter of 
arrangement can it not at least be con-

"Yea, I do think that the poetry 

written by college students today is of ■ 

very creditable character. In many 

Colleges and universities all over the 
United States there- are- many clubs and 

societies established at the present time- 
to promote student interest in poe-try. 
For years there have been such organi- 
zations at Harvard, Yale and Princeton. 

There is a great deal of good poetry 
Coming from these organizations, too." 

Thus spoke to Ye Scribe one who 
needs but little introduction to the 

modern college student who is inter- 
ested in the- progress of poetry today. 

For, who has not read, heard or seen 
that present-day competitor of Shakes 
peare and Keats, that famed sonneteer, 
David Morton? As professor of English 
at Amherst, has be not made himseil 

known by forming at Amherst the only 
undergraduate Poetry Society connected 
with the- National Poetry Society? And 
now he was spe-aking about poetry to 
Ye- Scribe who had come to find out this 
and that about the Amherst Poetry 


"Mr. Morton," timidly ventured Ye- 
Scribe, "Woulel you please tell me some- 
thing about your Poetry Society?" 

"Certainly," was the brisk reply. 
"Some years ago, we formed a student 
organization here called 'The Poetry 
Society of Amherst College' which still 
goes umler that name. This is composed 
entirely of Students who come to the 
meetings voluntarily. It has no con- 
nection with the college. The meetings 
held once a month are given over entirely 
to the discussion of poetry that has been

it behooves us to striv'e for the realization 
of our hopes. The latest rejiorts on tin- 
progress of the drive leave but little 
doubt as to the outcome- of the- enter

headway which we have already made is 
the forerunner to the climax of a drive

chooses ten or twelve of the best and 
takes them to the meeting. Everything 
is sent in anonymously so that it is

"At the meeting, each poem is read by 
a person appo in ted and each is discussed 
in its turn. Everyone has a chance to 
criticize, comment upon and discuss all 
the poetry read. After all have been

voted upon by the Society and the one 
that is selected as the best is called the

"Every year, the Society publishes a

Coach "Keel" Ball's club stored early in 
the game when Wheaton drove off tat kle 
for twenty yards after a march down the 
field. Ilueg rushed over the extra point 
Deerfield combined a long forward pen 
with an end run to tally in the second 
period. In the third <|uarter, DeerfieU 
continually threatened to score, but two 
stubborn goal-line stands by Stockbridge 

prevented a touchdown. A pass paved 

the- way for the home team's second sad 
winning touchdown at the start of tht 
last |M-riod. Stockbrielge made a stress, 
bid for a score near the end of the game, 
but a penalty spoiled the chance. The 
game ended with the ball in StOckbridge'l 
|M)ssession eight yards fremi the Deerfield

Massachusetts received again in the 
second half, but more kicks were in order 
as neither team could gain. Tufts then 
lost the bell on downs by inches. Kllert 
eluded the Jumbo defense to make a 10- 
yard gain but, on the next play, Godfrey 
recovered for Tufts when Brown dropped 
the- ball after a 6 yard gain. 

Pater in this period, the Brown and 
Blue got another favorable break when 
llaber recovered Bond's fumble on the 
Massachusetts' :!.") yard line. PeCain took 
a 10-yard smash through the Bay State- 
line and Muskavitz careened around right 
end for a gain that brought the ball to 
the state college's 11 yard line. This 
time, however, a Tufts lo-yard penaltv 
stalled the Jumbo's advance and Holm- 
beig intercepted llaber's pass on the 
in xt play. 

With less than a yard to go, Bond made 
first down to start the final period while 
Ellerl and Holmberg made a first down 
b etw ee n them that brought the ball to 
the Tufts' 45-yard line. For the next few 
minutes neither side could gain and 

Holmberg downed LeCain'i punt on the 
Bay State's 30-yard line Although 

Ailanson broke- through to nail P.llert on 
the next play, Brown passed to Holmberg 
lor an s yard gain and Bond immediately 
accounted for a first down. Tobe) again 
showed his alertness when he tossed 

Brown lor a loss on receiving a lateral 

pass from I lotmberg. 

Massachuaetl was not through passing, 
however, for. after taking another I eCain 

punt, Holmberg tossed to Brown for a 
15 yard gain; a lateral pass, Ellerl to 
Holmberg, was good for S more \ arils. 
and, although Brown was thrown f < >r a 

loss on the- next play, the Baj statu. 

countered with another successful aerial, 

Brown to Holmberg, bringing a first 

down on the Tufts' 20-yard line as the 
game ended. 

In addition to the work of their clever 
ends, Ailanson and Godfrey, the Jumbos 

had an efficient pair of guards in Ruggerto 
and ('apt. Rachdorf. < >n several occasions 

they paved the- way for their star ball- 
carrier, PeCain, to reel off gains. 

The state college's defensive- work a/as 
featured by the play ol the entire forward 
line, although the showing of Capt. Mann, 
Brae kley. and Poskett was particularly 
outstanding. l>iggs, who st.irted as full- 
back for the Maroon and White-, BCCOUn

In two weeks we will know whether our 

much hoped for Physical Education 

Building hi tO become an immediate 
reality or remain a vision of the future. 
If the goal is attained the lower classes 
now in college will be able to use the 
building before they graduate, otherwise 
several generations of students may pass 
through this institution before the old 
Drill Hall gives way to an adequate set 

of equipment. 

Not all the students have contributed 
or exhibited interest in any manner what- 
soever, though the number of contribu- 
tors is ini reasing fairly rapidly. We must 
have every student a contributor 100?! 
When the athletic field was being con- 
structed each one took an active interest 
and helped ia its final realization. In 
like manner the Memorial Building 
finally obtained. Are we going to fall 
down in the present enterprise, in some 
thing that will be of such enormous BSC 
and value to the college? 

Let us make a final effort to put our 
project across. Ev ery one give something. 
If you are acquainted with some wealthy 
person who you think might be willing 
to make a donation if approached pro- 
perly, notify the secretary of the college 
at once so that a contact can In? eat lb- 
lished. It may prove fruitful. Whatever 
is done, however, must be done at once 
since the time remaining is dwindling fast. 


As a result of the intenlass basketball 
tournament last wick, the freshman team 
are the present champions of the college. 
The final game, which was played alter 
Social Union last Saturday night, was a 
tight battle between the freshmen and 
sophomores, and resulted in a 12 to 10 
win for the yearlings when Houran sunk 
a long basket in an overtime period. 

In the final game, both teams were 
strong defensively, and long shots were 

resorted to. Houran was the star of the 

game as he dropped in four of these long 
tries. Matson, the other guard, scored 
the other two baskets, while White and 
Ahlstrom in the forecourt played well. 
For the sophomores, Connell, Foley, and 
I licks led both offensively and defensively. 
The summary:

Another December is about to roll by, 
and we are now .it the doorway of a 
new year characterized, as usual, by a 
rejuvenated spirit. As we look back over 
the past three months we are compelled 
to ask, "What have we contributed to 
the College, to our friends, and to our- 
selves?" Perhaps, we answer, "We took 
an active part in athletics; we worked in 
academics." In other words, we have 
kept alive the activities which existed 
long before we came to this campus. Yet, 
in the final anahsis. even though we 
have maintained standards established by 
our predecessors, we must not rest con- 
tent with the consolation that we are not 
slipping backward. We cannot mark 
time and yet contribute to our environ- 
mental factors. We must continue to 
move forward from one goal to another 
leading toward perfection. 

As for the seniors, they have only a 
few more months of active work on this 
campus. Soon they will be turning over 
to a new group their various duties, the 
success of which during the past year is 
determined by improvement. But, the 
seniors are not the only students who 
have definite goals to achieve. All of us 
have them; yet, what are they? 

The first goal points toward scholarship. 
Each of us owes it to his fraternity, to his 
College, and to himself to make progress 
in scholarship. Certainly in the latter 
consideration our position after gradua- 
tion will be influenced to a large extent 
: j our college marks. Our second aim 
deals with activities. The opportunity 
for participation in them is at hand, and 
it rests wholly with ourselves as individu- 
als as to the influence which we may have 
upon our college achievements in 1930. 

Score at end ot first half — Freshmen 4, Sopho- 
mores 4. Referee — Bernard. 1 ime—S minute 
quarters, and one 3-minule overtime period. 

On Tuesday night, the sophomores 
beat out the Stockbridge seniors in a 
close game by the score of 10 to 14. 
Connell scored the winning basket with 
but five seconds to play. Foley starred 
with eight points to his credit, and he 
was ably assisted by Connell. For the 
S.S.A. seniors, Frost scored six r>oints 
and Bower tallied four as well as doing 
some very good passing. The M.A.C. 
seniors forfeited to the S.S.A. freshmen 
on the same evening. 

Wednesday evening was the time of 
two rough one silled games, as the 
freshmen trimmed the juniors 25 to 8, 
and the sophomores took the measure of 
the S.S.A. freshmen 21 to 0. Ahlstrom 
scored seven points and White six for 
the winners, while I lager also played a 
strong game. 

At half time in the sophomorc-Stock- 
bridge freshman game, the latter were 
scoreless, but they scored three baskets 
in the final half so that the score was 21 
to 0. Foley, Tikofski, and Connell 
played well and did most of the scoring 
for the winners. 


An interfraternity basketball schedule 
has been arranged by "Larry" Briggs 
and "Dick" Fraser, the interfraternity 
basketball manager. The fraternities 
have been divided, as usual, into two 
leagues. Each team will play every other 
team in the league once, and the winners 
of the leagues will meet in the final for 
the championship. The members of the 
leagues are as follows: 


With the approach of the second term 
fraternities are once more turning their

Hector sends a I'. S. poem to Fannie on 
second thought: 
"If you love me as I love you, 
I guess you know that we are through."

when you used to get zeros?" 


That heartsore song revived. 


This week's prize goes to the Junior 
who got up early, brushed his teeth with 
shaving cream and shaved with his 

Now all he needed to do to complete 
his morning was to scratch his pancakes 
and pour the syrup down his back. 


And then there was the senior "moun- 
taineer" who instead of putting out the 
lights, rang the fire alarm— and when the 
scantily clad occupants of Pierson Hall 
dashed out yelling, "Fire," stammered, 
"I'm sorry, there isn't any fire!"

We have been interviewing some of 
the famous men on the campus to find 
out their favorite songs. Our football 
captain has consented to disclose his 
choice. He says: "After the Ball is Over — 
and the touchdown's ours."

Don't mind us, for all we can think of

Did you ever have a room-mate that 
was so good that when he came home at 
night and said that he knocked the exam 
cold and when you went to take it the 
next morning you found it terribly stiff? 


Fannie is terribly disappointed with her 
prep school boy-friend because she read 
in the paper that in the last track meet 
of the season he broke one of the best 
records they had in the school. 


College is a funny place, in fact it is 
just the opposite of the world which it 
inhabits,- by that we mean that in 
college things are marked down before

choice in the matter. 


And 'tis during this next week that we 
come face to face with the sad, but true 
fact that "A little knowledge is a danger-

"I'll take the lads," said stem, old 
Captain "Hook 'em" Trout as he eyed 
the two bo\s who bad come down from 
'lie States" to Cuba in the fall of 1901. 

"That saved our hides just as we were 
about to lie shipped hack to where we 
had come from for my pal and I were 
just over sixteen," finished Sergeant 
Warren as he hx>ked up smiling at Ye 
Scribe, who had shortly before invaded 

the s;itred precincts of the Military Office. 

"How did you enjoy your trip to Cuba 
in the boat?" was Ye Scribe's first ques- 

"Not so good! You see, we had only 
travel rations (hardtack and canned 
goods) to eat and we soon got sick of it. 
So, another kid ami I used to grab some 
good once in a while from the cook's 
galley when he wasn't looking, of 
course. The old tramp steamer we were 
in took ten days to get to Cuba." 

"Say, Sergeant, how did Captain 
Trout happen to get that moniker?" 

"It happened while WC were doing 
prison gi.ard at old Fort Severino, 
Mantanzas, Cuba. One morning when it 
came time for the prisoners to go to 
work, some of them "bucked" (refused). 
Just then Captain Trout came in, got a 
line on what was wrong, turned to the 
Sergeant-in-Charge, and said "Hook 'em 
out, Sergeant, hook 'em out!" At that, 
he started into the cell himself, carbine 
in hand. And, believe me, when the old 
man started in, they came out in a hurry. 
He didn't have to use any force, either. 
He sure was a great officer, straight as 
an arrow, tall and soldierly-looking, and 
with an old time cavalryman's flowing 
moustache. He was the kind Remington 
paints as Indian fighters." 

"Have you served in the Army ever 
since 1901?" asked Ye Scribe. 

"Oh no, stayed out six years from '04 
to *10. In 1010, I re-enlisted as in the 
cavalry and, when the war broke out, 
I was a Sergeant. From there, I was pro- 
moted to Second Lieutenant and then to 
Captain without ever being a First 
Lieutenant. In 1917, I asked to be 
changed to the artillery where I was 
commissioned Major in P. US. I served 
in two divisions in France during the 
war anil, after the war, in still another 
division here in the States. While with 
the artillery in France, most of the time 
I was second in command of the regi- 
ment and for a while commanded the 
regiment during the Colonel's absence at 
Artillery School. After my discharge as 
Major of Artillery from the Second 
Division in Texas, I came North, re- 
enlisted with my old rank as Sergeant 
and have been here since 1921." 

"You must have had a great many 
interesting experiences during your life. 
Did you ever have any narrow escapes?" 
"Well, I did escape being kept at 
Brest and hopping duck-boards. It 
happened this way: I was in Antwerp 
when they started to close up the base 
in the summer of 1919. I was detailed 
to take by train, oOO men, fifty officers 
and a few war-brides to the Port of Em- 
barkation at Brest. I had heard a lot 
about Brest and how hard it was to get 
away from there especially if you wen- 
commanding troops en route to the 
United States. I therefore formed my 
outfit into four Casual Companies with 
the proper number of commissioned 
officers in each company, attached the 
surplus officers to them and placed a 
Captain in charge of each separate out- 
fit. To make a separate command of 
each company, I turned over to each 
captain all the personnel and property 
records. So, I landed at Brest, turned 
over the four companies for embarkation, 
a thing which left me a lone wolf ready- 
to sail for home — which I did within 
eighteen hours after my arrival at Brest." 

"During your stay in the Army, did 
you ever think seriously of taking up 
some other profession?" queried Ye 

"In 1919, but nothing came out of it. 
I tell you, boy, it's a great life if you 
don't weaken on the way. However, it 
would take a lot to make me forget it 
all. If I were starting all over again and 
everything was the same, I certainly 
would travel the same road. I have no 
regrets for it has been a wonderful ex- 
perience 'From Private to Regimental 
Commander' — and back again!"

A week later, Bowdoin downed the 

Maroon and White by an 18 to ti score 
before the largest crowd of spectators 
ever to witness an opening game on 
Alumni Field. At the start of the second 
jH-riod of this game, Ilolmbetg, 
chusetts back, tore off a IS and then a L'O 
yard gain. On the next play, Brown, May 
State quarterback, threw off a number of 
would-be tackier: I and raced 52 yards tor 
S touchdown, the first in this game. 

The next Saturday, Middlebury nue<l 

nit the Maroon ami White in a very 

exciting game, the score being 14 to 12 

in favor of Middlebury when the final 

whistle caught the ball in Bay State's 

possession on Middlebury 's six-yard line 

after a march from midfield. This game 
constituted the football attraction of 
Mome-Coming Day. 

By taking advantage of scoring oppor- 
tunities, the Massachusetts eleven de- 
feated Norwich the next week with a 12 
to result. Minkstein, Bay State tackle, 
blocked and recovered a punt on the 
Norwich one-yard line, making tin- 
winning touchdown possible. 

Aerials flew thick ami fast in the annual 
encounter with Worcester Tech, and 
Massachusetts completed enough to give 
the state college a 19 to 12 victory. In 
the second period, Fllert, star Bay State 
back, caught a short pass from Holmlterg 
and evaded all tacklers in a sixty yard 
run for a touchdown. 

Amherst, on the first Saturday in 
November, won the annual town title 
iiattle by launching an aerial attack in 
the last quarter and secured one touch- 
down, while their other tally was realized 
when Tener intercepted a state college 
pass and ran 55 yards for a second touch- 
down. The final store was l.'i to 0. The 
scrappy Massachusetts eleven had the 
Sabrinas worried for the first three 
periods and threatened to score a numbei 
fif times. 

Coach McGeoch presented less than 
half of the Bay State first team against 
t)w Springfield College eleven the next 
week yet only in the first and last p eri ods 
miild Springfield muster sufficient punch 
to store through a strong state college 
defease and the final score stood at 12 

In their objective game of the year, 
Massachusetts played the strong Tufts 
team to a scoreless tie, the first time 
Tufts had not scored upon its opponents 
in three years. The state college had the 
edge over the Jumbos, collecting ten first 
Inwns to four by the Medford team.

"The Daddy of them all" 
Amherst, Mass. 

Although graduation will take a num- 
ber of the state college stars, next year's 
team should be of the same high caliber 
which marked this year's eleven, as much 
material has been de v e l op ed during this 
season which should be good for two 
seasons yet. Kllert and Bond will be 
lost to the backhcld next year, but 
Kimball ami Diggs are expected to fill 
their shoes, while in the line, Captain 
Mann, Hrackley, Cox, and Magnuson will 

be replaced by Bunten, Gagtiarducci, 

Burrington, and Pollard. Other first 
string men who are ex(M-ctei| to return 
next year are, Little, Foskett, Foley, 
Brown and llolmberg. 

Next year's grid sc h ed u le includes all 
the colleges played this year with the 
addition of the College of the City of 
New York. This schedule bids fair to 
lie of much interest to the followers ol 
the VMi team.

Beginning in t his issue and continuing 

through the third issue of the term there 

will be included in this column a series 
of articles dealing with the problems and 

possible solutions of fraternity rushing 
at MAC. Without doubt, the proposi- 
tion involves many arguments pro and 
con; but nevertheless, we believe these 
arguments and their relation to our 
College have never Iwen presented pre- 
viously in a concise series of articles. 
Thus, we present this matter for your 
consideration with the expectation that 
suggestions will be generously offered. 


To our knowledge second term rushing 
or a modification of such has never been 
given an experimental trial at this 
College. However, perhaps such a plan 
of rushing would work as favorably here 
as it has worked at other colleges. Of 
all the arguments in favor of such a 
system there seems to be two worthy of 
very careful consideration. In the first 
place, second term rushing would mini- 
mize or eliminate entirely the possibility 
of freshmen pledging and then regretting 
their action. If the pl ed g ing date were 
set at the beginning of the winter term 
with the understanding that B freshman 
could not pledge until that period speci- 
fied, the prospects would have much more 
time to become thoroughly acq u a inted 
with the undergraduates from the various 
houses and thus make the selection ac- 
cordingly with no after-thoughts. 

In the second place, second term rush- 
ing would eliminate the false front usually 
presented during the first week of the 
fall term. As the present rules make 

necessary, each fraternity must present 
its best appearance during that short 

Week and give the pledge prospects B 
false conception of normal conditions. 
Naturally, 8 freshman will pledge where 
he is best received and will not have 
during this short time an Opport u nity to 
see fraternities as they really exist. In 

other words, false i mpres s i o ns will be 
counter acted by the truth, and the 

usual freshman bewilderment at the end 

of the first week Will be eliminated. 

Under the present system there art- 
two pledging dates, in which case the 

question of "getting men" is carried 

through a whole term after an elaborate 

first week in September. is gained 
by the long lapse between the two pledg- 
ing period*? There seem- CO be BO secure 
reason for the exist em e of both dates; 
but there remains much to DC gained by- 
placing the date at the beginning of the 
■ecOOd term and by eliminating the first 
pledging date. There can be no objection 
to having freshmen visit the entire group 
of fraternities during the first week for 

it aids in making acquaintances; but 
there is no necessity in making a fresh 
man pledge at that time or wait until 
the following January. Why not extend 
the date to the second term and give the 
prospective pledge an opportunity to 
consider the matter thoroughly? 

needs and conditions better than any 
system that has tome to our attention. 

Perhaps the biggest advantage of 
pledging men during the early part of 
the year is that they are thereby brought 
into intimate contact with others who 
can help them acclimate themselves and 
render them assistance during that 
period of their college career when they 
need it the most. The change from high 
■Chool to college is a very great one as 

far as studying and actual living is con- 
cerned. By becoming connected with a mils new men lay themselves open 
to a potent influence in helping them 

become adjusted to the new conditions, 
and thus to get the greatest amount of 
good from the new life at the earliest 

possible moment. If left to their own 

devices they will naturally associate with 
other newcomers and it will require ■ 

in m li longer time for them to become 

used to the new conditions. Many 
freshmen have found that they get 
valuable aid in their studies from upper- 
classmen in their fraternities, whereas if 
they were not connected with any house 
they would be at a loss to whom to turn. 
Another important feature of early 
rushing is to get the matter out ol the 
w,i\ at the earliest possible moment. 
Rushing is a severe strain on all who 
participate and undoubtedly distracts 
much attention from other matters, so 
the sooner it is out of the way the sooner 
all conce r n e d can focus their attention 
on things for which they came to college. 
The fraternity is one medium through 
which college authorities are able to 
reach the freshmen effectively, and prob- 
ably the only one. The number of men 
in the I lass is far too large to permit any 
close supervision, but if this number is 
divided up into ten comparatively small 
groups, as in the ten fraternities, it is 
jxjssible to maintain what amounts to a 
personal touch with them through the 
older members of the fraternity. 

There is a distinct advantage from the 
point of view of the fraternity, and that 
is with early rushing it is possible for 
new men to join the house at an earlier 
date than they would otherwise do, and 
the financial burden ui>on the members 
of the house is considerably lessened. 

With having to make up their minds 
the first week of college as to what fra- 
ternity, if any, they wish to join, there 
is always the possibility that some 
freshmen will make mistakes and pledge 
to a house which they do not wish later 
to join. This is not such a terrific dis- 
advantage, however. Probably without 
exception every fraternity on this campus 
is a cross-section of the student body 
and with this in mind it is not assuming 
too much to say that any normal person 
would find congenial companions in any 
house, and would be developed to an 
equal degree BO matter which one he

Fraternity rushing is again one of the 
uppermost thoughts in the student's 
mind. Once more is heard the arguments, 
pro and con, of deferred rushing. Inter- 
ested as usual, Ye Scribe began to look 
around for someone who knew fraternities 
thoroughly in order to obtain from him 

something that might give the under- 
graduate an idea of w hat older fraternity 
men think about the subject. By chance, 
he found out that Professor Rand was 

quite an authorit) <>n fraternities. Pro- 
fessor Kami, it seems, has had a varied 
career as a member ol the Phi Sigma 
Kappa fraternity. In add iti on to being 
the editor of the fraternity publication, 
Tkt SigtMt, for sixteen years, he was 
National Secretary for three years, on 
the Supreme Court for two and on the 
Executive Committee of the interfra- 
ternity Editors Association. He also 
wrote the I'lii Sigma Kappa History. 

When asked about the rushing system 
at this College, Professor Rand said: 

"There will never be created a satis- 
factory rushing system. If the fraternity 
is essentially a helpful organization on a 
campus, the freshman should be get. ing 
the benefit of it during the first half of 
his first year when he needs it the most. 
If it is a necessary evil from which the 
freshman should be kept away as a new- 
comer, it ought to be abolished entirely. 
There's nothing to indicate that the 
fraternities would select very much more 
wisely later in the year than in the first 
two or three weeks. I say this because 
the personnel of fraternities is extra- 
ordinarily uniform on this campsu. Every 
fraternity has good men and others not 
so good. There is not much difference 

"Well." asked Ye Scribe, "why is it 
that there is so much talk about deferred 
rushing on the campus?" 

"Only this. The great objection in the 
present scheme lies in the fact that the 
fraternities are unable to control the size 
of their delegations. Some have too many 
pledges while others have too few. It 
would be perhaps desirable to handle the 
bids through a committee allowing each 
fraternity its accepted bids up to a 
certain number. The machinery of such 
a system would be complicated but some 
such scheme could be worked out. Not 
so many years ago, a student had a plan 
all worked out but it was never tried. A 
limitation of this kind would be very- 
desirable. " 

"But what is the objection to deferred 
rushing?" queried Ye Scribe. 

"The objection to deferred rushing is 
that it will inevitably breed su s p ici o n if 
not actual violation of the rules. These. 
in turn, lead to hard feelings and ani- 
mosity. In fact, it would seem that an 
arrangement in which the fraternities 
would adopt a gentlemen's agreement on 
two or more simple matters is probably 
preferable to any elaborate system of 

"What, in your opinion, is the ideal 
size of a fraternity?" WSJ Ye Scribe's 
next question. 

"In a college like ours, a fraternity of 
over thirty-five men is a contradiction 
because there is no brotherhood in very 
large numbers. Still, the fraternity is 
here to stay. So long as it does not be- 
come political, over social and too ex- 
clusive, then 1 think it is a good agency."

While an abundance of clever wings and

should score consistently, there is some 
concern about the defense positions as 
there is a lack of material for these berths.

man on the defense.

ted that the gross contributions to 

building fund amounted to approxi- 
telv 107,000 of which alumni, students, 

ulty and others belonging to the college 
Up had contributed 170,500 and those 

connected with the College 126,500. 

i the expenses of the campaign had 

Hinted to $10, (KM) there was lilt 
liable for the building $X7,<KM). 

\t a preceding meeting of the full 

imittee, it had been decided that. 

Mite half the com of the 1360,000 

building bad not been raised, it was 

angry to revise plans. Accordingly 

Mian- were drawn for a building 

isting of a dirt tloor cage 160 x 180 

uid a single front unit about 150 x SO 

feet. Nearly all of the facilities of the 

building originally planned are included 

in the new plans with the exception of 

the swimming pool. It was with great 

t that the committee abandoned 

this feature, but it was plain that some 

taction was necessary. The estimate 

foi the cost of the building according to 

the revised plans is $22"),(MK). 

The committee proposed to Commis- 
-inner Howard that the State supply the 
balance needed to construct this 1225,000 
building. The proposal was very cordi- 
ally received and serious consideration 
promised. Assurance has since been 
received which convinces the committee 
that an item of $135,000 will lie included 
in this year's State Budget to be matched 
by a contribution of $90,000 from the 
committee. While the matter is not 
settled it is hopeful and the prospect is 
bright that we shall have a new Physical 
Education Building by next year. 

It is obvious that the committee still 
has some money to raise. Because of 
contingent expenses the fund ought to 
be increased by $5,000 within three 
months. In view of the fact that the 
building is now practically assured this 
should not prove difficult. It means, 
however, that the committee needs the 
OOtttiaued support of every loyal student 
sad alumnus. 

Few people realize the tremendous 
i mm. nut of work which has been given to 
this project. Of course Professor Hicks 

given full time for nearly two years 
uid it has been very full time. Mr. P. 
I Whitmore '15, Mr. S. T. Parker '04, 
\b G. H. Ellis, Trustee, President 
Thatcher and others too numerous to 

tion have given a great deal of time 

and thought to the project. While the 

whole objective has not been reached, a 

satisfactory building seems assured

War he held a commission in the I'.S.A.

of New York. 

One of the most striking haract eristics 

of Mr. Ennis 1 seas cap es is their sharpness 
of outline Nothing is obscure, whet he- 
it be the hulls of the boats, the rugged. 

bulging crags, the seamen's huts, or the 

clouds. Predominant along with this 
clearness is the bright, ringing color of 

the pictures. The sea. if it lie expansive. 

is of the deepest blue, if flooding the base 

of the crags, is a vivid bluish green, or if 
dashing against the rocks, is .is white as 
the sails. The missive crags themselves 

reflect ■ rich burning-brown in the after- 
noon sun. while between them mav nestle 
a moist, green meadow. 

Humanity ptayi aa important part in 

Mr. Ennis' seascapes. Always there are 

rugged, roughly-clad fishermen along the 

shore or in their boats, mending a sail or 
a net, baiting a trawl, or perhaps Caulking 
a boat. And always are there attentive 
onlookers, inter e st ed in the activities of 
the workers. Often there are women and 
children, the women reconciled to the 
toiling, hazardous life of the fishermen, 
and the children looking forward to it. 

Perhaps the most oust and ing feature 
of all in these paintings is the life and 
motion which radiates from them. N0t 
only is this felt in the busy figures of the 
workers, but in the fresh blowing sea- 
breeze filling out the sails in the rating 
waves of the open sea or the swirling 
smooth water about the jutting rocks, 
and in the fleets of sloops speeding with 
anticipation at sunrise out of the shel- 
tered harbor toward the fishing grounds. 
In short, in all of these pictures the 
amount of light is so handled as to bring 
out the sharpest, most colorful, and 
liveliest effects, — the technique of a 
modern painter.

A fine administrator has been lost to 

the College by the resignation, effected 

December 31, of William I. Goodwin 'IB 

who has been assistant secretary of the 
Associate Alumni, and field agent for the 
College during the last four years. Mr. 
Goodwin has accepted a position with 
the agricultural division of the Bureau of 
the Census, U. S. Department of Com- 
merce, Washington, D. C. 

Mr. Goodwin left College in January 
1018 to serve in the U. S. Army during 
the War. seeing service overseas in 

France, Belgium, and Germany in 1018 

and 1010. He returned to M.A.C. in the 

fall of 1010 to complete his course, and 
graduated the following June. After 
graduation he entered government ser- 
vice with the U. S. Census Bureau at 
Washington. During the four yean from 
1H22 to f036 he was a teacher and super 
visOT of agriculture with the U. 5. Veter- 
ans Bureau in East Norfolk. Mass., and 
in P ro viden ce, R. L, leaving the latter 
position to take the place of Richard A. 
Mcllen '21 at M.A.C. 

During his stay at this College, Mr. 
Goodwin has been engaged in much 
valuable work, assisting in securing funds 
to clear the note on the Memorial Build 

tag, in the Physical Education Building 

Campaign, as well as acting as field agent, 
and director of the Alumni Office, lbs 
place is being taken by Mr. George E

and on the freshman team, his si/e, and 
his dependability under the basket are 
earning him a position. "Stan" Stani- 
siewski has returned to college, and his 
play at center is a big help to the team. 
He is a consist ent scorer as may be re- 
called from the Harvard name last year, 
in which he accounted for seventeen 
points. In the guard positions, "Ray" 
Mann is a letterman from last year, and 
"Johnnie" I'aksarian has been cleared 
from scholastic difficulties so that he may 
play this winter. Both men are good 
defensively and are clever at shooting 
long baskets and feeding the forwards 

on the offense. 

For the substitutes, Davis and Foley 
are outstanding. The former plays 
either at forward or center, and is a good 
shooter and follow-in man. "Jack" 
Foley, captain of last year's freshman 

quintet, is a dependa bl e guard. The 

second team is completed by Burbank, 
forward, and Suher, guard, seniors; and 
Kneeland, a junior, who was a forward 

on the 1027 freshman team. Othei 
members of the squad are Bernard ",

Swimming Pool Possible 

Plans Almost Unchanged 

If Legislature Approves Budget, 
Construction Should Begin This Spring 

Rev. John Hawley Is 

Sunday Chapel Speaker 

Things have moved very rapidly dur- 

the past week so far as the Physical 

Education Building project is concerned. 

President Thatcher announced in 

e mbly last week, just when the Coin 

ttec had given up hope of getting the 

. iinming pool with the new building, a 
very generous citizen offered to make a 
contribution of $25,()0() for this purpose 
Ot course, this does not settle the matter 
since a larger appropriation by the Legis- 
lature is now required and we cannot be 
Mire of the final decision until the budget 
is finally passed by the Legislature which 
will probably be some time in March. 
However, the situation is very hopeful. 

The financial situation as it now exiMs 
i> that the Alumni Committee has avail- 
able, or will have by raising a few thou- 
-ikI dollars more to cover expenses, 
1116,000. It has asked the State to 
provide $172, 5(M) and thus make avail- 
abh) a total of $287, M). This latter re 
queM is based on the same percentage 
iM.uiKt nient as the former when the 
Mite was asked to provide 1136,000 to 
match the Committee's 100,000; that is, 
i I'irty-sixty arrangement. As in the 
CMC of the former request, State officials 
have received it with every consideration 
.inel the Committee feels justified in fed- 
ink very optimistic concerning the ulti 
mate outcome. 

< >f course, this recent development has 
involved another revision of plans. The 
( "iiimittcc started out with a project for 
.i Imilding which was estimated to cost 
$325,000 to $:*. r >0,(XX>. Last week these 
plans were revised to provide a structure 

estimated to cost $22f>,<><><) which did not 

ini hide a swimming pool and which pro- 
vided for a single front building and a 
in the rear. New plans are now in 
the process of preparation which will 
include the swimming |>ool and which 
will provide for practically all of the ion- 
wniences of the original plan at a cost 
1287,500. Savings are ex|H-eted to be 
• . however, by changing the dimen 
BOM of the cage to 1")0 ft. x 1X0 ft. and 
bj including all of the other facilities in 
e angle front unit to be .'*) ft. x 210 ft. 

If the Legislature approves the budget 

item as proponed, construction should be 

!i this spring or early summer and 

' i- possible that the building will be 

ready for use before the end of the next 

• \car.

Pastor of Local First Congregational 

Church Pleads for Support of 

Christian Religion 

Speaking in the absence of the Kev. J. 
V. Moldenhower of New York, who was 

forced to camel his engagement here be 

cause of illness, the Rev. John Hawley 
of the Amherst First Congregational 
Church nave an inspiring adehess on the 
Christian religion at Sunday Chapel this 
week. He chose as his text a passage 
from the First Hook of John: "Be Strong 
and of food courage; be not affrighted or 

dismayed, for the Lord thy Cod is with 

thee- whithersoever thou goest." He 

began by reminding us that we arc in a 

Mate of transition and to show the many 
Opposing theories and beliefs which e<, M 
front us today, he mentioned the athc -ists 
and their nut li.»«l of distributing their 

propaganda among school children; he 

spoke of the behaviorists, who believe 
that the glands of the body control 

human behavior; he touched on Freudian 

seli.Kil of thought, which says that the 
subconse ions mind g overn s human actions; 
and he quoted Harry Klmer Marnes as 

saying, "The church is the gre ate st 
stumbling btoch in human program " 

"What shall we do about it>" he asked, 

■nevering his question with four |>oints, 

the first of whie h was, "Surremler not," 
reminding US not tO «ct panic ky or eon 
[Used, for although the fall of Christianity 

was predicted for a hundred years ago, 

it has not happened, as is not likely to 
bappSO. In support of this state-mint he 
said that fifteen out of every sixteen ol |

As is usual, the first Assembly of the 

tc rm eras given over to P r e s ideul Thatcher 
at which time the outstanding problems 

and projects confronting the College are 

disc ussed . With the sudden turn of 
affairs co nc e rn ing the- Physical Education 
Building Campaign, related elsewhere in 

this issue, the speaker found immediate 
administrative affairs we-ll accomplished, 
and devoted his time to relating the ex- 
periences and Observations of his last 
winter's cruise about the West Indies. 

The Guff Stream was the first topic 
whi b President Thatcher discussed. The 
Stream is about twenty-five dc greei 
warmer than the surrounding water, and 

has an estimated velocity of ho miles per

the hope that the weather man will be- 
kind. If that prophet fails, the affair 
will be held on the first possible Saturday 
thereafter. In order that no one may

This fraternity rushing is the biggest 
humbug in college. Perhaps I had better 
say one «>f the biggest humbugs, for the 
competition is strong in that class. 

There ought not to be any such thing. 
The average freshman wants to get into 
the fraternity quite as urgently as the 
fraternity wants to get him. If the fra- 
ternities would all sit back, darken their 
windows, close their doors and silence 
the phonographs, the freshmen would 
Come to the side entrance begging ad- 

Each fraternity seems to be afraid to 
try this superior method of selecting 
pledges, fearing that more sales pressure 
from other chapters would steal aw.iv 
all the prospects. It is an unfounded 
fear. Especially if three or four of the 
stronger fraternities on our campus 
(letting anybody judge which are the 
stronger) would agree to adopt this re- 
versal of customary practice it would 
work like a charm. 

A Complete cessation of rushing would 
l>c an inestimable boon to all freshmen 
and therefore eventually to everybody 
else. Let the newcomers alone to look 
about for themselves and in the natural 
course- of events most of them will go 
where they belong. As our practice now 
is nobody has more than one chance in 
five to go right, that is unless his father 
has been through the college and the 
fraternity seizure before him. Our pres- 
ent rule which requires all the freshmen 
to be rushed off their feet and out of 
their senses the first three days on the 
campus appears to my judgment to be 
the worst arrangement which long study 
could devise. 

Yet even this does not justify courting 
the freshmen as though the world de- 
pended on them. The spectacle of a full- 
grown senior grovelling in the mire be- 
fore a lanky lantern-headed freshman, 
feeding him compliments with one hand 
and cigarettes with the other, always 
gives me a slimy feeling in the stomach; 
and I think it affects the intelligent 
rushee unfavorably, too. A week later, 
when the tables are reversed, and the 
unfortunate freshmen have to be spitted 
and tortured "to teach them where they 
belong," the rank hyprocrisy of the rush- 
ing season is publicly demonstrated so 
that even the proud wearers of the pledge 
pins can see through it. 

Second year rushing permitting no 
one to join a fraternity below the sopho- 
more year— would be preferable to our 
present system, in my opinion. But this 
plan also has its serious weakness. The 
fact is that a good fraternity can do 
more to help and stabilize a green fresh- 
man than any other influence on the 
campus. The freshman year is when a 
student needs the fraternity— it is just 
"when a feller needs a friend." 

The problem therefore is to get the 
freshman into the fraternity best suited 
to his personality, and to pledge him and 
initiate him as soon as that can be safely 
done. Every sort of high-pressure rush- 
ing merely worries and befuddles the 
victim at an hour when he is already so 
confused that he often forgets his own 
name, what town he came from, where 
he is now, and how he got here. 

A thousand more assertions may be 
made as touching this really important 
subject. These thousand assertions will 
be made annually, too, for the matter 
will never be closed to everybody's 

satisfaction. The foregoing remarks are 
not offered in the expectation of a final 
settlement, but as expressing, in part, 
tin viewi of one who has watched the 
whole fraternity game closely for a good 
many years. Frank A. Waugh 

It is the zero hour the close of the 
rushing season. The telephone rings. A 
voice- at the- other end reports "This is 
freshman 'X*. What do you think of 
the Omega Alphas' as a fraternity? I low- 
do the 'Alpha' rank scholastically? 
I have bids from both. Which do you 
think I should join?" What an unhappy 
wire! Perplexity at both ends! A fresh- 
man, broken loOSC from home moorings, 
cast adrift on an uncharted sea with 
nothing to tie to but a meaningless lingo 
of "local," "national," "cosmopolitan 
group," "best sophomore delegation," 
etc.! An instructor, acquainted with said 
freshman through one meeting only, un- 
informed as to the relative merits of 
various fraternities, above all desirous of 
being impartial, and requested to chart 
said freshman safely to port! Such is 
rushing under our present system. 

Woe to him who seeks a solution to 
this problem, however. His is a greater 
task than that of finding the proverbial 
needle, for at least there was a needle. 
"Rushing is a severe strain. Cct it out 
of the way as soon as possible," say some. 
"Put it off," argue others. "Deferred 
rushing is the thing." 

Let us be different and propose a hy- 
brid deferred, first term rushing. Surely, 
it cannot be much worse than either of 
its parents. Let the first week of rushing 
stand as it is. After all, there is no study- 
ing to be done and an excellent oppor- 
tunity is afforded for all to become ac- 
quainted. Follow this initial intensive 
period by five weeks of modified rushing. 
Most of us do not work Friday and 
Saturday nights and Sunday afternoon. 
We apologize for ourselves by saying we 
need to relax at such times. Let the 
diversion be rushing. In other words, 
follow the first week by a five week period 
in which rushing is confined to Friday 
and Saturday nights and Sunday after- 
noon. Anyone found guilty of rushing 
at other times must be severely punished 
or the system will fail. 

The above plan meets several of the 
objections raised against the other two 
systems. A freshman puts on his pin at 
the end of six weeks just at the time 
the first Dean's report is out. It is about 
that time that fraternities begin to help 
f.eshmen and it is about that time that 
they need help. Thus the objection to 
deferred rushing— lack of assistance from 
upper classmen— is met. On the other 
hand, one week of intensive rushing 
followed by five of modified gives a 
freshman considerable time to deliberate 
on the merits of the several fraternities. 
This takes care of one objection to our 
present system, namely, that a newcomer 
does not have time to become acquainted 
with the members of the different houses. 
Again, much more truth can come to 
light in six weeks than in one. The 
longer period will force the fraternities 
to use their imagination less and facts 
more. It will cause them to conserve 
their resources. There will be less chance 
to force a freshman into pledging by 
by stuffing him with expensive food and 
more opportunity to win him by reveal- 
ing one's real worth as a man. 

Lastly, such a system, if carried out, 
should not encroach on study time but 
should profitably utilize that part of the I 
week set aside for relaxation. It should 
enable the freshman to approach the 
zero hour with more confidence and less 
fear or trembling. ||. o. Lanphear

How stern you rise O frowning battlement, 
Whose walls seem ever eager to disclose 
Tradition's tale. A lasting monument 
Of deeds and time, of men who fought thy 

A prophet too of future years art thou, 
Whose scarred walls the years have toned

No more by force, but in respect, we bow, 
For through the years thou hast but 

honored been. 
The cannon which in strife has played a 

No more shall challenge, then subdue 

with fire; 
A useless ball within its rusting heart, 
It speaks of peace that quells the nations' 

Defensive once did you survey the sea, 
But now you seem to rise to welcome me.

From the London Punch: "In view of 
experiments which are being carried on 
at the Amherst Agricultural College, 
Massachusetts, with the object of tem- 
pering the flavour of the onion, we antici- 
pate the organization in 'Wop' circles as 
a 'Hands Off the Gertie 1 movement." 

Hands across the sea, eh what? 

Oh yes, and here is a bit of freshman 

Eng. Prof.: "What is the story of 
Mademoiselle X?" 

Frosh: "Isn't it 'Monsieur X'?" 

2nd Frosh: "Neither, it's rotten X!" 


Now, dear readers, you may well wonder 

Where our freshman friend has gone, 
Since you would tear your wits asunder, 

We'll give you the reason thereon. 

She has passed off her entrance conditions, 

So Suzie Soph now is her name, 
Made wise by her friends admonitions, 
She studied,— but is yours just the same. 


Suzie Soph herself blushingly claims 
this week's prize. She is taking her first 
Hort. course, and when given a narcissus 
bulb to plant, she put it in upside down 
so that she would get good root develop- 


We have waltzes, fox-trots and marches, 
—but now the band makes our "Alma 
Mammy" an old time one-step. It's the 
spirit of the age, keep it up. 


How about a sportsman's medal for 
the kid who goes skating on the pond at 
six o'clock, all alone, every real cold 


After seeing our "hoopsters" beat 
Fitchburg, Suzie decided they must be 
the stars in stripes. 


Frosh (to big brother): "Gee, how 1 
wish there were 27 light years!" 

B. B.: "For cat's sake, what do you 
wish that for?" 

Frosh: "Well, I said so on my Agri- 
culture final." 


Yes, and after an evening at the first 
Friday night dance of the year, one could 
easily wonder: "Where are the stags of 
yesteryear?" But more lives were lost 
in those days and secret wars waged on 
and off the floor. 


What's an ordinary man to do when a 
noted psychologist states that if you 
bump your head and it doesn't ring, it's 
cracked; if it does ring, it's empty. 


Suzie's boy-friend accused her of being 
conceited because she collected such a 
rush at the last dance; but she finally 
convinced him that the only thing that 
could turn her head was her neck. 


If there is anything a man hates and 
cannot bear, — yes, we'll tell you, it's 
"belles on his toes." 



|?e Scribe 

Two score and twelve years ago, there 
graduated a class from the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College which has been one 
of the most outstanding classes that this 
College ever produced. Perhaps one of 
the most famous of that class if the mm 
who, for forty years, served as president 
of a well known school of technology, the 
Cast- School of Science. That man is Dr. 
Charles Sumner Howe. It was at his 
home in North Amherst that this retired 
gentleman, in spite of all his honors, 
degree s and fame, a very charming and 
congenial person received Ye Scribe 
into his library and proc eeded to enter- 
tain him with his reminiscences of days 
gone by. 

"You know, our class was quits a 
successful one in this world," began Dr. 
Howe. "Out of the twenty men who 
graduated with the class of 1S7S, there 
are several who have made great successes 
in life. Three of these became college 
presidents at some time during their 
careers, four studied medicine, three ob- 
tained doctor's degrees in Germany, 
several l>ecame prominent business men 
and only two became farmers taking up 
farming in a large way. It was a good 

At this, Ye Scribe asked, "Then, I 
take it, students in those days didn't 
come here only to learn how to farm." 

"In general, no. Most of us came to 
college for the scientific aspects of a 
college education. I, for one, spent most 
of my time in studying chemistrv. al- 
though I did not follow chemistry after 
1 graduated. It was the same with most 
of the other men who came to study at 
M.A.C. at that time." 

"How do you like the looks of the 
campus now as compared to its appear- 
ance fifty years ago?" asked Ye Scribe. 

"I like it very much," was the reply. 
"The only things left on campus that 
were there in my undergraduate days are 
North College and the building which 
houses the Physics department at the 
present time. Another thing left is the 
earthworks between South College and 
the Drill Hall. That was built by us in 
'77. We usetl to shoot over it into the 
pastures to the west. The guns we used 
were the old twelve pounder Napoleons." 
"Do you like the way the College as a 
whole has been going of late years?" 

"Yes. It has developed wonderfully 
since the early days. I am also pleased 
with the broad courses of study that 
they are now offering. In fact, I think 
that it is one of the best colleges there 
is for giving the sort of education it has 
to offer. 


Interfratemity basketball started in 
full force last week with six games played. 
Interest in the games is high, and it is 
interesting that many men are partici- 
pating who never played before. The 
predominance of freshmen in the ganu 
prompts the suggestion that more upper- 
( lawmen should take part in and benefit 
by the games.

It seems that there isn't much left to 
talk about the weather, — which reminds 
us, did you ever see such a drama that 
ever had such a happy and quick ending 
as that wimming pool one? The report 
which was given out at Assembly sounded 
like a college movie with tie score, the 
ball on the 5-yard line, and two seconds 
to go. Rare and racy, eh what? 

Last week one could put; one's heels 
down to any depth in the ground while 
crossing our damp campus. In this wet 
connection, one of our would-be Collegi- 
ans sent in this one: 

I can stand the rain most anywhere, 
On doorstep, road, or street, 

But never can it I endure 
When sitting in a rumble seat.

Last Monday evening, the Stockbridge 
basketball team travelled to Shelburne 
Falls with Coach "Red" Ball planning to 
use the following men in the first and 
second team games: F'irst team. Bower, 
last year's letterman, and White as for- 
wards; Boardman or Whitington at 
center; Hill and Coyle, a last year's 
letterman, as guards. The second team 
which will compete against the Shelburne 
Falls seconds is to include Andrews and 
Griffen in forward positions, Baker in 
center. Smith and Lee as backs. 

The team has practiced four times this 
week and much improvement has been 
shown and Coach Ball looks forward to 
a fair season. The Stockbridgers play 
Palmer High at Palmer next Tuesday 

A league has been formed between the 
candidates for the freshman and Stock 
bridge teams who are not playing tir-t 
string. Three games a week in each 
league will be played, and winner- of 
the leagues will play three games for the 
championship. Some of the teams will 
be coached and all of the games will bt

In a close- and exciting game, M.iss.i 
chusettS overcame the las! ami powerful 
Northeastern University basketball team 
28 io 23 last Saturday night at the Drill 
Hall. Minkstein and Captain Idle rt led 
on the offense with eight and seven points 

respectively, while Tiffany, star Husky 

forward, caged four baskets and four 
fouls for a total of twelve- points. "Jack" 
Foley iii his first full Varsity game, did 
a wonderful job in guarding Symantyk, 
the key to the- Northeastern offense, and 
Mann also played a good defensive game. 
In ball-handling and offensive |>owcr, 
MAC. was superior at all times. 

Early in the game, the visitors got olf 
to a S to 1 lead, but the Maroon and 
While settled down so that I hey trailed 
by only 11' to 10 at half time. MAC. 
displayed an offensive rush in tin- third 

period, led by "Freddie" EUert, but at 

the- beginning of the fourth epiarter, 
Symancyk tied the score at 121 all. Mink- 
stein and Stanisiewski caged a pair of 
baskets lor the winning margin. In t lit- 
last two minutes, Massachusetts cleverly 
kept the ball fioin Nort lieaslern, ami 
e merg ed the- winner l!. r ) to '2'A. 

Northeastern counted first with fouls 
by Sv mane yk and Tiffany, and Foley put 
Hay State in the score column by dropping 
a free shot. Then Tiffany sank three- 
baskets in succession, ami Minkstein 
scored from under the basket to leave 
M.AC, on the short end of a S to '.i 
score at the epiarter. In the second period, 
Minkstein seore-el again, and Idle rt ami 
Foley for the home team and Tiffany for 
Northeastern tallied on fouls. At this 
point. Knee-land re-plae eel Minkstein, who 
had a lame ankle. Kansford scored for 
the visitors cm a e enter combination and 
a gift toss, but M.A.C. also scored three- 
points on Kneeland's foul and Lllert's 
long basket, anil the half closed with 
Northeastern leading 112 to 10. 

At the start of the third iM-riod, Kllcrt

Stanisiewski and Minkstein, back in the

Northeastern's only scores were baskets 
by kymph and Tiffany and a foul by the

to 17 at the beginning of the fourth 
c|iiarter, Symancyk dropped a close- shot 
and he and Kymph tossed fouls to tie 
the score. Minkstein and Stanisiewski 
however, again put the Maroon and White 
into the lead with double-deckers from 
under the basket. "Kay" Mann was 
removed from the game by the persona! 
route, and was replaced by "Johnny" 
I'aksarian, who aided the team c o nsi d er* 
ably in a defensive game-, keeping the 
ball from the visitors. Symancyk anel 
Tiffany each got a foul before the close 
of the game. The final gun left the score-

a game which equalled last year's Wor-

His subject was "A Comparison of 
Chaucer and Longfellow." 

Bstwees, tlu- two poets, Chaucer of 

tin- Itth century and Longfellow of the 

19th century, there was ■ peal like new, 

Both wrote narrative poetry, and each 
had the kindliest and friendliest of 
natures. Both had an artistic tempera- 
ment, a great /est in their work and each 

had poise in his life and work. The signi- 
cant thing however in the corresponding 
qualities of these two men is that thev 
are not homologous, but only analagous. 
In all this similarity their lives and phi- 
losophies of life were entirely different. 
Chaucer surrounded himself with a life 
of activity, vigor, worldliness, of bright 
colors and the spontaneity of spring. 
Longfellow, on the other hand, chose a 
quiet, calm, thoughtful life, loving the 
subdued colors of autumn. 

A consideration of this similarity and 
yet great difference aroused in the speaker 
the question of what constitutes human 
happiness. Inquiring further the speaker 
found that both poets had natures of 
strength, tranquility, gentility, and s ri- 
ous thought and that neither was melan- 
choly. Both had traveled much, and both 
loved the inte lectuality and art of Italy. 
In fact, Longfellow expressed the desire 
to see Italy through the eyes of Chaucer. 
He felt that Chaucer challenged him to 
look at the world in an Epicurean mode. 
In short, Longfellow realized that the 
bright coloring of Chaucer's life was a 
desirable factorfor his own.

counter and emerged the victor. Frost, 
Maroon and White wing, score in the 
last five minutes of the initial period 
without assistance. Cunness then fol- 
lowed up immediately afterwards with 
the second tally for the state collegians. 
This made the score tied at 2 all at the 
i lose of the first period. 

During the second period, the Massa- 
chusetts men had numerous chances to 
store but the expert tending of the 
Hamilton vital tpot by Redmond, who 
made fifty stops during the game, pro- 
hibited the Bay Staters from increasing 
their total. 

Davis stored on a rebound early in the 
final period and the state college sextet 
played an excellent defensive game for 
the remainder of that period. Hamilton 
was able to make only six shots at the 
Massachusetts net during the last period, 
after Davis scored. 

The passing work of the Bay State- 
team showed much improvement over 
the Connecticut game with Davis the 
Outstanding offensive player and Capt. 
Dick Bond leading the defense. Gunness, 
sophomore tlefense man, also showed 
much improvement over his varsity 
debut, the Connecticut encounter. 

With three games scheduled for this 
week, the team will find some lively com- 
petition when it invades New York State 
..-.tin to play West Point Wednesday and 
St. Stephens at Annaiulale on Thursday 
should result in a victory for the Massa- 
chusetts men. Brown should present 
some strong opposition next Saturday

dence. The summary of the Hamilton

Tentative plans for the third annual 
small high school invitation basketball 
tournament at M.A.C. to be held March 
."), 6, 7, and S have already been made. 
As in the past, "Larry" Hriggs will 
manage the tournament and the athletic 
department as a whole will serve as a 
committee to select the teams. 

It has been voted that Deerfield High 
School will be one of this year's contenders 
because of the splendid showing they 
have made in winning the title the last 
two seasons. This means that the Deer- 
field entry, already the possessor of two 
lop on the trophy, will be given a chance 
to become jiermanent holders of the 
championship plaque. 

Geographical restrictions that have 
governed previous tournaments are to be 
broken down, and teams from Berkshire 
county, Connecticut members of the 
Twin State Conference, and Vermont 
will be considered. Stafford Springs and 
Bennington High, the latter coached by 
"Joe" Hilyard, former M.A.C. athlete, 
will warrant consideration as well is 
teams from Western Massachusetts. 

The committee also favors the choice 
of one of the real small schools, one with 
an enrollment of less than one hundred, 
such as Sanderson Academy and Williams- 
burg High. These school teams are 
coached respectively by Lewis Black '27 
and "Ed" Wilder "28. 

Public schools only will be invited to 
the tournament, as the committee feels 
that although some of the private schools 
have small enrollments, their material is 
usually much better than that of the 
small public schools. 

This year's tourney is to run through 
four days and all games will be played 
in the evening. It is also emphasized 
that the tournament is not for the pur- 
pose of deciding a sectional champion- 
ship, but is purely an invitation affair 
for small schools who will compete foi 
the M.A.C. championship trophy only. 

l-'or the purposes of making the choice 
of teams as carefully as possible, the 
committee has divided the district into 
counties, Ralph Stedman of Springfield, 
chairman of the Massachusetts advisory 
basketball committee since the war will 
pick the tournament representatives from 
the Twin State conference and Hampden 
county. "Kid" (.ore will pick the Hamp- 
shire league representatives. "Larry" 
Hriggs will watch the Franklin county 
contenders and "Red" Bail the Berkshire 
ami Worcester county teams, as well as 
.iiiv possible out-of-state contenders. 


'28 "Joe" Hilyard is enjoying his work 
as director of physical education in the 
public schools of Bennington, Vt. He is 
conducting physical education work in 
all the schools from graded through high 
and coached a very successful basketball 
team last winter at Bennington Hi-^h.

Finally, the principal observation whi. h 
President Thatcher made on this tr.p 
was the ways in which aevi ral different 
countries managed their colonies, par- 
ticularly in regard to the latter's attitude 
toward tourists. On the Virgin lata 
inhabited by Danish people, he found 
that America did not allow her colom tl 
to beg, while on the island of Martin, a 
French colony, it seemed that Ffa 
encouraged begging. On Barbados, a 
Hindu colony under the British, the in- 
habitants are allowed to do as they pi' 
The Hindu people are allowed to exercise 
every tradition and custom of thtir

colony, civilization was found at it> 
worst, while, well toward the other ex- 
treme, in whatever Dutch colonies Pre* 
dent Thatcher chanced to visit, he found 
industry, cleanliness, and no begging.

Ninth Aggie Revue Includes 
Variety of Entertainment 

Musical Numbers Much in Evidence. 
Whole Performance is Noteworthy 

Last Friday evening, under the aus- 
pices of the Roister Doisters, the students 
of the College presented the fourth Soda] 
I'nion entertainment of the season in the 
form of the Aggie Revue. This yen's 
Revue was the ninth in the history ol the 
Dramatic Society, originating with then 
in 1021-1828, and was produced with the 
-aine genuine success of those pudding. 
Opening the performance "Thre. 
Beats," composed of Harmon (). Nelson 
'31, Don C. Tiffany "31, and K. Kingaley 
Whittum .11, put on a very creditable 
nt. The trio proved to he "chorus 
.lancers deluxe," while VYhittum gave a 
nappy example of what < -log-dancing 
really is. No less rhythmic was the organ 
piano syncopation duet of Tiffany and 

That the performance was really a 
musical revue was signified in the next 
feature, called "Satisfied." A duet of Un- 
popular song was characteristically ren- 
dered by Miss Vera Wright "A2 ami 
Harmon Nelson, while the chorus of ten 
{irk kneeled in as characteristic a manner. 
The feature of the act was the pleating, 
ex|K-rt, and gracefully flowing toe-dancing 
exhibi ion by Miss Muriel V. Bracket! 
whose performance was finished in a 
thunder of applause, and who received a 
fragrant token of gratitude from the 
audience. The burnished, flashing, and 
ringing banjos of John R. Cuenard next 
o ccup ied the spotlight. His interpreta- 
tion of familiar songs and of his own 
rompoaitioa were very pleasing. 

"A One-Act Tragedy" presented by 
Walter Smith '28, Bruce E. Bottomly 
'•'il, Harmon Nelson, and Don Tiffany, 
substantiated by music and words to 
One's Enough for Me" by Tiffany, was 
.1 most original and ingenious act. The 
situation of the flaming hotel, and the 
"fighting firemen," Smith and Bottomly, 
■tutting calmly about the science of fire- 
agfatiag with the guests, Tiffany and 
Vlson, had all the ear-marks of reality. 
By the firelight the "Campus Quar- 
tette," I.ucien W. Dean '30, Allen S 
West *31, Kenneth K. Hodge '.i2, and 
Robert C. Tetro 'U2, melodiously enter- 
tained the audience with a variety of 
amp including jazz, southern lyrics, and 
ullaby melodies. After Vincent N.

J. Paul Williams Speaks 
on "What Is Success" 

Fighting for a Purpose Bigger Than 
Ones Self is the Ideal 

j.ffaul Williams held the interest of 
those who attended Sunday Chapel this 
week by answering the absorbing (pies 
lion, "What is success:'" He began by 
reminding us that everyone must make 
three important decisions in his youth; 
he must choose his job, choose his mate, 
and decide the queatioo, "What is m\ 
religion?" or, to state it in different 
terms, "What is success?" 

He went on to say that two answeis 
are commonly given to this i|iiestion, 
both of which are wrong. The first says 
that real success comes to the man who 
lives unselfishly, who first considers, in 
planning his life, the needs of OtheTB, 
and regards his own interests incident ly. 
Very few of us need tO be warned against 
following this idea of success too ilos.iy, 
but the second wrong answer which is 
sometimes given, is much more danger 
oils: sa\ing, "Success is living selfishly. 
Don't bother about the other fellow; 
his world is a dog eat dog affair." 
"Then what is aocceaa?* 1 the tpeakei 
asks, answering his question by saying 
that it is fighting for a purpON is 
bigger than oneself, that is ideal, that 

commanoa allegiance, ■ purpose of which 

Jesus would approve Most of us seem 
to be far away from this ideal, however. 
for we are serious about trivial things 
and trivial about serious things. The 
true joy in life conns from being used 
for a PtaTp Oa t recognized by onesell as a 
serious one; success is being lost in this 
one great purpose. 

Warning against both narrowness and 

executive open-muadedueea, which would 

result in never settling anything, Mr. 
Williams reminded us that, to be a 
sin (ess, we must have faith, and gave 
several striking examples of the great 
things accomplished by it. 

He concluded his address by again 
emphasizing his statement that success, 
as well as religion, is giving oneself to a 
great cause, is struggling eternally for an 


Covernor Allen Recommends $172,500 
for Physical Education Building 

The Physical Education building is 
brought much nearer by the inclusion of 
an item of $172,f>()0 for this purpose in 
the budget ivcommcndat ions for 1930 

announced by his Excellency, Governor 

Frank ('.. Alle n last Friday. The 

Governor'l ion is made con-

thus making *2H7„ r KH) available for the 
proposed building. This budget recom- 
mendation now goes to the Legislature 
■ md if a p p ro ve d there the funds will be 
available. That it will be approved is a 
reasonable ex|M-ctation and. in view ol 

the desire of the Governor to get the 

State's building progiam started early as 
a boon to business, action may be ex- 
pected early this spring. In the mean-

In behalf of the students of the College 
we extend to our alumni, faculty, and 
friends of the College, our appreciation 
for their valuable support in endeavoring 
to make possible the new Physical Edu- 
cation Building. It is obvious that with- 
out their active support and generous 
contributions such a building could not 
possibly have been attained for many 
years to come. We, who are at present 
students at the College and to whom a 
new physical education building is of 
inestimable value, realize that they have 
made a great contribution to the future 
of the institution and we thank them for 
making the project possible.

Every day there appears in the news- 
papers something or other about the work 
of the League of Nations, that large and 
august body of representatives of most of 
the nations of this world which is intent 
on bettering the state of mankind in the 
fields of diplomacy, commerce, industry 
and other phases of man's existence. 
While thinking about the League of 
Nations Model Assembly which will be 
held this spring at Yale, Ye Scribe re- 
membered something about last year's 
assembly that people are likely to pass 
over. That was what is called the Inter- 
national Labor Office, a subdivision of 
the League of Nations which, according 
to some authorities, is doing more for 
the world than the League itself. To find

Twice a year and sometimes more fre- 
quently there arises the question "Who 
should be first?"- especially when one 
rises to leave Bowker Auditorium after 
a morning chapel or an afternoon assem- 
bly. Some answer the question for them- 
ielves by leaving their seats in haste as 
if to make a quick exit from a purking 
danger. There really is no danger present; 
but nevertheless, some students seem to 
be of the opinion also that there is no 
system by which we all have been in- 
structed to leave the auditorium. 

In the past seniors have been given 
preference and permitted to leave before 
the three other classes. Do they? Not 
exactly. In fact, everyone seems to 
think that there is no preference. A 
sophomore has just as much right to 
leave before seniors as the juniors have. 
Thus arises the question "Who should be 
first?" We have it your decision. Should 
this precedent be one of the many tra- 
ditions destined to the debris along with 
the other college customs?- In truth, this 
matter is not only a tradition, but it is 
also a sign ol respect.

Perhaps it is too early to comment 
upon it as yet, but it begins to look as 
though the epidemic of sickness, which 
usually seems to follow hard on the heels 
of Christmas vacation is going to pass us 
by this year. We certainly hope so, but 
it is up to each one of us to do his share 
in preventing it. The fact that our bill 
of health is, on the whole, quite clean 
should not be a signal for carelessness. 
but rather a spur to increased caution. 
The contrary weather of the past week 
was ideal for development of the sickness. 
It is during such times as these, par- 
ticularly, that we should exercise addi- 
tional care. 

In previous years much time has been 
lost from studies by a number of students, 
creating a handicap which has been very 
hard to overcome. We cannot afford to 
take chances. 

Observe the health rules of the Physical 
Education Department as closely as 
possible and if you feel ill at any time 
make sure you receive proper attention. 
Catch it in time. If you see anyone 
moping about the fraternity house or 
dormitory make him visit the infirmary 
or else report his case so that others will 
be protected. 

Oh yes, we forgot to knock on wood. 


It is none too early for the present 
seniors to start looking for positions for 
next year. Those who leave this im- 
portant step until the last minute usually 
have to, or do, accept whatever they can 
get, whether it suits them or not. When 
June comes around many industries will 
be looking to the colleges for new ma- 
terial, it is true, but at that particular 
time many more possessors of degrees 
will be looking for situations. Why not 
begin now? 

The heads of the departments will no 
doubt be of great assistance in furnishing 
their students with advice and contacts, 
but in the final analysis the cand date 
must assume the greater part of the re- 
sponsibility. It is his personal affair. 
Contacts may be established at first by 
writing, but it will be found that personal

Here's something consoling to those of 
us who can't remember trigonometrical 
or chemical formulas: 

Referring to the remark of the Oxford 
don who defined education as "What 
remains behind when you have forgotten 
all that you have learned,"— we think 
that's pretty good. 


How do you like this one? 
President Emeritus Thompson of Ohio 
tells a story about a student who was 
taking an exam. He couldn't answer the 
last question. He thought that the pro- 
fessor was a pretty good friend of his, 
so he wrote "Only God could answer 
that question. Merry Christmas". The 
professor write back "God gets a hundred; 
you get zero. Happy New Year." 


If you can beat this plea to alumni 
help, we'll resign: 

"There are two classes of people, those 
who leave wills when they die and those 
who leave bills. At the funeral of the 
first there is sorrow. At the funeral of 
the second there is a panic. When a man 
leaves money to a college, it proves he 
is more interested in heads than in head- 
stones. A bequest to a college is the 
nearest you can come to finding the 
foundation of youth. It can be founded, — 
but not found!— Rollins College Record.

sought out Dr. George E. Gage, head of 
the department of bacteriology and 
physiology, who spent part of his summer 
last year working on a special commission 
of the League at Geneva. 

According to Dr. Gage, who, by the 
way, has been to Switzerland ten or 
eleven times both for study and amuse- 
ment, the commission he was on had for 
its purpose the study of public health 
as pertained to all kinds of industries, 
especially agriculture. This commission 
sought, like many other committees 
appointed by the Labor Office, to gather 
facts and disseminate the knowledge that 
it gained from research. It brought to 
light many situations that needed atten- 

Dr. Gage went on to say that it was 
very interesting to note the vast number 
of recommendations that were brought 
up for the betterment of conditions of 
industrial workers. Of course, many 
were rejected but the visitor at the 
International Labor Office would appre- 
ciate the task involved if he could see 
the great mass of detail necessary to be 
gone over before anything can be done. 
Besides, there are other things that hold 
up work. 

One of the greatest handicaps that the 
Labor Office has to strive under is the 
fact that there are too many bureaus and 
offices connected with the different 
countries to ever get anything done with 
speed. Dr. Gage laments this fact be- 
cause, with the personnel and resources 
that the Office has, it could be possible 
to do more and greater things if there 
were not so much "red tape." 

Concerning the building which houses 
the Labor Office, Dr. Gage had nothing 
but praise. Situated on the shore of 
Lake Geneva, the building which cost 
two million dollars has a regular staff of 
over four hundred employees, not count- 
ing, of course, the special commissions 
and committees. It is a splendid building 
for carrying out the work which has been 
placed within its walls. 

In conclusion, Dr. Gage praised the 
splendid work being done by the heads 
of the divisions who carry the brunt of 
the work that is being done. To his 
mind, it is questionable whether they are 
getting the proper support that they 
should get from their assistants. How- 
ever, the Labor Office to him is a won- 
derful means of improving the industrial 
situation the world over. 

Eight games in the interfraternity 
tournament were played last week, with 
the results as follows: 

A.G.R. 26, K.K. 14 
Alpha Gamma Rho defeated Kolony 
Klub on Tuesday, January 14 by the 
score of 26 to 14. The Hicks brothers 
again featured, "Dick" getting 12 points 
and Murray 10. For the losers, Buel 
accounted for seven points. 

S.P.E. 14, A.T.G. 9 
In the other game on last Tuesday, 
Sigma Phi Epsilon took the measure of 
A.T.G. 14 to 9. Hetherington led Sig 
Ep with seven points, while Moulton 
scored six for A. T.C 

Q.T.V. 37, T.C. 1 
Last Wednesday night, Q. T. V. 
smothered Theta Chi under a 37 to 1 
score. Kane, Baker, and Costello were 
offensive stars for the winners. 
N.F. 12, D.P.A. 7 
After a slow first half, Non-fraternity 
men overcame Delta Phi Alpha 12 to 7 
last Wednesday night. Wanegar and 
Cox for the winners, and Pyenson for 
the losers, each scored four points. 
A.G.R. 14, P.S.K. 8 
Although Phi Sigma Kappa led 4 to 2 
at half time, Alpha Gamma Rho hit 
their stride in the second half to win 
14 to 8 on Thursday night. Murray 
Hicks led his brother in points 6 to 4. 
A.T.G. 31, K.E. 
A.T.G. shut out Kappa Epsilon 31 to 
Thursday night. Lewis with 11 points 
and Mongillo with 8 were the big guns 
for A.T.G. 

K.K. 13, T.C. 9 
Last Saturday afternoon, Kolony Klub, 
behind Nelson and Yueg, set back Theta 
Chi 13 to 9, in a loosely played game. 
L.C.A. 17, K.S. 5 
Lambda Chi Alpha got going in the last 
few minutes to win last Saturday 17 to 5. 
over Kappa Sigma. The score was 4 to :; 
in favor of Kappa Sig at half time, but 
Schule's nine points helped Lambda Chi 
to win in the latter half.

The Carnival Committee has a com- 
plete plan of action ready to be pushed 
through on the first favorable Saturday. 
It is to be emphasized that competitors 
only will be excused from classes. So 
sign up for events now at the M.A.C.C.A. 

The next meeting is to be a formal 
initiation of the Order of the Guides. 
Those candidates who still have some 
requirements to pass off are urged to 
arrange for tests as soon as possible. 

The Trails Committee during the past 
three weeks has cleared out the brush 
from the Long Plains Trail to the power 
line, and the Metawampee Club has cut 
the rest of the way, making an excellent 
ski trail from the Outing Club Cabin to 
Hillsboro, which is the most direct route 
to campus. 

Mr. Shaw gave a vivid account at the 
last meeting of the strenuous life of the 
forest ranger. Fire-fighting, as he de- 
scribed it, is very much like real war- 
fare—a terrible, thrilling experience.

Hockey Team Developing Fast 

With the advent of cold weather and 

ice, Stockbridge hockey candidates are 

at last practicing under the direction of 

Coach "Chick" McGeoch. Development 

of the team is slow because of the lack 

of experience of the men, and workouts 

largely consist of fundamentals, skating 

practice, and conditioning exercises. The 

first game is scheduled for next Friday, 

here, when the team meets Holyoke High, 

which has been defeated 12 to by 

Williston. On Saturday, the team goes 

to Ashburnham to play Cushing Academy. 

Coach McGeoch is working on two 

forward lines, one consisting of men who 

had some experience last year, and one 

composed of freshmen. In the former 

line are Durkin, right wing, Brown, left 

wing, and Hastings or Duffil at center. 

The freshman trio is Lewis, left wing, 

Henry, center, and Murray, right wing. 

On the defense, the most promising men 

Owing to the fact that some men were 
playing varsity, intramural, and inter- 
fraternity basketball, last week the intra- 
mural league was reorganized. By tin- 
new arrangement, no men playing on the 
fro! i man or Stockbridge varsity team- 
or probably on the S.S.A. second team 
may play in the intramural league. Also 
no men playing on the varsity or intra 
mural teams may play interfraternit\ 
basketball. Four teams, two COCapeeed 
of freshmen and two of Stockbridge OKI 
are now in one league, rather than six 
teams in two leagues as before. The 
teams are the Celtics, Crescents, Fort 
Wayne, and Renaissance. Members of 
these teams are: 

Celtics — Scott, Whitcomb, 
Stewart, Ocampo. 

Fort Wayne- Moulton, D. 
Hueg, Nelson, Whitney, Buel. 

Crescents— Fawcett, Chenoweth, Mina- 
rik, Smith, Kovaleski, Call. 

Renaissance— B. Twohig, J. TWohfe 
Brox, Dupont, B. Crocker, Phelon. 

Games in the new league started 
Saturday when Fort Wayne defeated 
Renaissance 19 to 10 in an interesting 
con est. The scoring was well divided 
among the players, and both teams pie)* 


This week's games are: 
Friday, 8.30, Fort Wayne vs. Crescen

Saturday, 3.00, Celtics vs. Crescent- 

are Shats, Wheaton, and Warren. Fj*

conditions, a wide ratine of climate-vary- 
ing from tropical heat to north temperate 
briskness in the mountains and by I 
class of true Anglo -Saxon people in the 
upland areas, the ri -e of the South has 
been phenomenal. 

In pooling, the speaker mentioned the 
substantial hospitality of the South, a 
quality which every visitor tomes to love, 
and which is comparable to that reputed 
for New England. This intimacy is due 
to a great extent to the bond of com- 
panionship which the great textile in- 
dustries foster among its workers. The 
housing conditions of the South are 
greatly improved due to the efforts of 
the same manufactories. In noting that 
the South is in a rather depressed con- 
dition at the present time, Mr. Draper 
pointed out that, after all, the prosperity 
of this section goes back to agriculture, 
and that the textile industry is normally 
the lowest paying of large scale industries. 
Competition has also greatly affected 
these industries. In general, however, 
the s|H-aker stated that the condition 
was quite temporary, and that there are 
good opportunities in every line of occu- 
pation. The South has already received 
many M.A.C. men as teachers, landscape 
gardeners, and industrial managers. For 
a considerable time in the future the 
speaker feels that the South will draw 
her most successful managers trom the

Fourth Cospel, Usually Credited to 

John, May Have Been Written 

by "The Undying Lazarus" 

Prof. F. P. Rand wis the speaker at 

the Tuesday evening Language and 

Literature talk List week. Speaking on 

The Undying Lazarus," he expressed 

opinion that the fourth Gospel 

lily, if not probably, was written by 

I i/arus, and not by John, who is usually 

, redited with it. 

The speaker, first showing that the 
Gospel of John was app aren tly written 
'tin- one whom Jesus loved," painted 
a vivid picture of lioth John and Lazarus, 
and made it evident that the latter was 
the most logical author of this Goapel, 
which, by virtue of its deep philosophy 

and lack of parable*, is peculiarly differ. 

int from the other three. 

I'rofessor Rand then proceeded to 
refute the more serious objections to 

tins theory, laying that the reason 
Lazarus is not referred to in any other 
Gospel may be that there was jealousy 
among the twelve disciples. This possi 
bility is further suggested by the fact 
that the place of the last supper is not 
definitely referred to in the first three 
Gospels, but the Goapel of John plans 
it at the home of Lazarus, and says that 
SC also sat at the table. 

After efficiently disposing of several 
Other objections, the speaker closed, 
ng the thought that it is possible 
that Lazarus went through his experience 
of death and resurrection so that he 
might better write a more deeply 
iptred life of the Saviour.

hopes of the Outing Club and allowed 
enough snow last Saturday for the Club's 
id annual winter carnival since the 
War. The first one of recent years was 
held two years ago, the occasion being 
impossible last year. 

Saturday morning's events began with 
a rid form competition which was divided 
into three heats with performances on 
tin toboggan slide, on the hill in the 
orchard and on the jump respectively. 
The event as a unit was won by Hardy 
Wahbjre* 'Al, with Leopold Takahashi 
31 second and Charles Little '31 third. 
The next event was a cross-country ski

Plans for the annual Military Mall have 
been going along at a rapid r.ite and all 
things seem to foretell that this year's 
military frolic is going to be the best 
ever. Tickets are selling well and the 
committee expects even a larger crowd 
than last year. 

Something entirely new and different 
is being attempted in the line of decora- 
tions. "Hal" White has charge of the 
decorations with very able assistance in 
the form of "Breezy" Baitscfc who is 
chief designer. If this combination can- 
not make the Drill Hall look as it never 
has before, it can not be done. 

Last week's Collegian contained an 
error about the chaperons. The latest 
information is that the Smith chaperon 
is Mrs. Mary Ingles of the Washburn 
House who must be called or seen Thurs- 
day, February ti, between 4 :.'{() and 5:30. 
The Mt. Holyoke chaperon is Mrs. 
(nippy of Wilder Hall. Inasmuch as 
transportation for the girls has to be 
arranged ahead of time, it will be m 
sary for men bringing women from either 
place to notify Cox or Scdert|uist by 
February A. Don't wait till the last 

Since this is a College dance, everyone 
should turn out to make it the biggest 
and best of the year. Everyone is in\ ited. 
Anil don't forget; there is a limited 
number of tickets.

1 or several weeks there consider- 
able discussion of the fraternity rushing 
and pledging system in vogue at this 
college in the eolunins of this paper. 
Arguments for and against deferred 
pledging were presented by persons who 
have considered the subject. Perhaps 
through these Silkies others have ob- 
tained mw light on the subjtCt. How 
ever, it was somewhat disappointing to 
find that no comments M further dis- 
cission have come from those who 
should be interested in the matter. 

From this it is logical to conclude that 
everyone is satisfied with the present 
arrangement; but, of course, we know 
this is not the case. Many think that a 
carefully worked out plan of deferred 
rushing would be much more desirable 
than the one we now use. Hut is this 
matter to die here for the present, to be 
brought up next year in the same manner? 
The point we are trying to make is that 
now that this very debatable subject 
has been dragged into the public eye it 
should not be dropped after the exchange 
of a few haphazard ideas, Some ait ion 
should be taken. If, after careful de- 
liberation by representatives of all con- 
cerned, deferred pledging should be 
deemed advisable, it must be instituted 
without further delay. Too often these 
suggestions that might be constructive 
in the highest sense of the word are per- 
mitted to die a natural death. 

fa we see it, the responsibility now 
rests with the Intel traternit y Conference. 
Ample notice should be given the various 
fraternities so that they will have time 
to discuss thoroughly the pros and cons, 
ami then at a meeting of the Conference 
perhaps an open meeting some sofa- 
tion formulated. The matter is very 
important and demands due consider- 

There was much feeling of satisfaction 
,ind even rejoit ing at the annual meeting 
of the Hoard of Trustees, recently held, 

because of accomplishments of the Physi- 
cal Education Building Committee. While 

the building is not yet an actuality it 
a/as hit that it is practically assured and 
that thus one oi the outstanding needs of 
I Ik' College is about to be met. The 
Trustees have long felt the urgent need 
lor such a building, and yet have been 
tumble to secure state appropriation for 
its construction. The alumni, in taking 
the initiative and in furthering the 
project to such an apparently satis- 
factory conclusion, have rendered a very 
great service to t he College. The Trustees' 

appreciation of the efforts of the Com- 
mittee towards securing the building is 
not less than their satisfaction in the way 
the campaign has been conducted They 
feel that many new friends have been 
made for the College through this cam- 
paign. The fine spirit of co-operation 
exhibited by executive and administra- 
tive officers of the State is another tribute 

to the efforts oi the Committee. 

Another apparent fad is the general 
satisfaction in the new building plans 
which provide the needed facilities at an 
estimated cost of .•?2S7,.")tH). The Trustees 
feel that the architects' drawing from 
these plans presents a better appearance 
than that of the original plans, and, 
while some consolidation has been neces- 
sary, they feel that none of the essentials 
have been lost and some advantages 
have been gained. 

The efforts of the many persons who 
have helped in this campaign are sin- 
cerely appreciated. By unanimous vote 
the special thanks of the Hoard were 
extended to Philip F. Whit more, chair- 
man of the committee, and to Curry S. 
Hicks, manager of the ca m pa ign . 

ft W. Thatcher, 
President of College 

Do you remember the gentleman who 
spoke at Chapel about the younger 
generation? Well, here's what you are 
coining to: 

The class of l'.»2ii, in reunion at Smith 
College, won the cup for the best song, 
which we quote in full. 
"When we were in college we were just a 

little wild; 
We made smoking legal, and we didn't 

smoke them mild. 
President Neilson scolded us, like every 

other child — 
We were the younger generation. 
Whoopee! Whoopee! We had a lot of fun. 
Whoopee! We did what wasn't being 

We liked to shock our elders, and to see 

them turn and run — 
We were the younger generation. 
Now we're third reuners, and you may 

think we are through 
Finding lots of joy in life, but we're just 

telling you 
Our fun is just beginning, for now we can 

be. too, 
Shocked at the younger generation. 
Whoopee! Whoopee! They don't run 

college right. 
Whoopee! Hare legs are an atrocious

Before many weeks come to pass one 
hundred and ten students, more or le>s. 
will receive their Bachelor of Science 
degrees from Massachusetts, and go out 
among 300,000 other American 1990 
college graduates after enjoying a so 
called "four-year loaf." By the ordinary 
layman unfamiliar with college, its 
character and obligations placed upon 
the youth desirous of becoming leaders of 
tomorrow, a college career is depicted as 
being available only for those who have 
money to spare. Perhaps, this inaccurate 
conception has been based Upon and 

banded down from the requirements of 

the early educational institutions of 
higher learning. The prerequisites were, 
for example, money, social prestige, and 
a desire to study the classics. Today a 
college education requires only one pre- 
requisite; namely, adequate preparation. 
At the present time money is not 
necessarily a factor of prime importance 
although it is very advantageous to one 
striving to obtain a degree. Every year 
students go through college, partially, or 
in many cases, totally self supporting. 
For instance, last year at the University 
of California, it is reported that approxi- 
mate^ seventy-five percent, five thou- 
sand students, were partially or totally- 
self supporting. This Is not the only 
American institution which affords oppor- 
tunities for student employment. Prac- 
tically every college student can obtain 


Prof. Fred C. Sears has placed on 
exhibition in the Memorial Huilding, a 
collection of photographs, mainly en- 
largements, from the negatives made 
during 1928 and 1929 in Labrador. 
Professor Sears spent the last two sum- 
mers sailing up and down the Labrador 
coast, visiting all the settlements and 
advising Sir Wilfred Crenfell on many 
matters relative to the development of 
the physical plants connected with the 
famous hospitals and missions there. 
Some of his pictures have been shown 
as lantern slides but many others have 
not been publicly exhibited before; and 
in many cases it is more satisfactory to 
look at a good enlargement on the wall. 
The pictures will be on display for about 
ten days. 

Oh, now at last we're old enough to 

grouch from morn till night! 
Shocked at the younger generation."

Often when I am sitting in some dull, 
solemn class, I wonder why the class, 
professor and students, do not suddenly 
burst out in great laughter at this whole 
comedy of getting an education. 

The English Leaflet 
CD — 
Inasmuch as many have problems, 
Susie Soph (Winnie Wise or Sagacious 
Sue, as many prefer to call her) has 
agreed to try to help solve them. Here 
is the type of work she deals with. ( Xote: 
Anonymous letters will receive neither 
thought nor attention, but the writers 
will be held in low repute.) 
Dear Susie Soph: 

I have a problem. The Phys. Ed. 
Dept. has passed a new law and I can't 
use the showers. 1 see that I am under 
the law, but am not to be under the 
showers. What shall I do? I want to go 
to the Military Hall. 

Antus Eptic 
P.S. I have no basket. 
Dear Antus: 

You have no problem. You are only 
a short distance from the Connecticut 
River. Also, have you heard the new 
-ong: "Singin' in the Hathtub"? Don't 
worry,- the popularity of the shower is 
fast becoming extinct. I'm sorry but do 
not understand basket business. 

Susie Soph 
Joe adds that it's all wet anyway, and 
that a barrel would be much more effec- 
tive than a basket. 



Mrs. Roscoe W. Thatcher recently 
held a delightful birt Inlay party at her 
home on Mt. Pleasant for all those 
women members of the faculty whose 
birthdays occur during the month of

repeat this celebration each month during 
the year in honor of the birthdays which 
come in these months respectively. There

This week's prize goes to a sophomore. 
He overheard a junior who is taking 
"Religion 90" talking about a "cretin" 
and said, "Oh yes. One of those people 
who live on the Isle of Crete." It's true. 


Believe it or not, but we know a 
freshman pledge that worked so hard 
cleaning his "room" that the fraternity 
house manager had to warn him to 
leave the varnish on! 


Now we know why it is called the 
Outing Club. Take a look at the bruises, 
shiners, and scratched faces of everyone 
—including the Athletic Department. 


And then there was the hunter who 
left the cellar door open to preserve his 
rabbits until Sunday night — and froze 
the water pipes. 


There is nothing new under the sun? 
How about skating back to the Abbey 
after a "Vic" party? 

Who's 11 ho says that Walter Dyer was 
born in Massachusetts several years ago, 
studied at Amherst College, worked on 
a newspaper, served on the editorial 
staff of a magazine and wrote several 
books on different subjects during his 
life as an editor. It also says that he 
has written other books since then anil 
now lives in the town of Amherst. Well, 
ye Scribe reckoned that many people 
knew these things but that few knew 
little, if anything, about the man him- 
self, so he ventured to pay Mi. Dyer 
a call to see what he could learn from 
this man who had so pleased the College 
Assembly last term when he delivered a 
talk on Shays' Rebellion. 

As an authority on the novel, Mr. Dyer 
was a fit person for Ye Scribe to question. 
Besides, he has some very definite views 
on this subject as Ye Scribe afterwards 
learned. To begin with, the scribbler 

"In regards to writing, what do you 

think of Greenwich Village as contrasted 

to the Pelham Hills?" 

"Well," was the reply, "I think it 
depends ujxm the individual. Some 
people get a stimulus from living in the 
city; others get their inspiration from 
the country. It won't do any harm to 
any young fellow taking up writing to go 
to the city where he can come in contact 
with other writers. In fact, it does men 
good to get the ex pe rien c e ; but such 

exper ie nce is not absolutely necessary. 
Many get along very well without it." 
"Hut what do you think of Greenwich 

Village itself?" persisted Ye S< ribe. 

"To me, Greenwich Village is just a 

state of mind. However, as such, it has 
a distorted view on life, in many cases 
exaggerating and over-emphasizing things 
around it, such as sex, unhappy marriages, 

love tr a ge d ies and so on. Eugene o'NYil 

is one of those writers who gives a dis- 
torted view of life. Most of the strange- 
aspects whkfa this group, large and strong 
as it is, depicts are to be found almost 
entirely in plays ami novels." 

"Do you believe that, to write gnat 
poetry, a poet must undergo some great 
calamity during his life, as some people 
maintain?" asked Ye Scribe.

Missions spoke at Sunday Chapel this 
week on the subject of working out our 

i islvatioa. 

He opened his address by saying that 
rail's great message was "Work out 
vi.ur own salvation with fear and trem- 
bling," and his great problem was to 
bring man's eternal yearning and God 'a 

rnal power together in man's soul. 
Ihis has been the great problem tlirough- 
out the ages, lor one of these great forces 
cannot work without the other. 

A materialist once said that science 

has destroyed the idea of a personal < «od. 

Dr. Eddy attacked this attitude as an 
attempt to push God out of the univei ,<■. 
and said that it would break the effort 
o( the past three thousand years to solve 

Paul's problem of forming a partnership 

with God. We cannot work out our 
salvation alone without the helping hand 
nj I .oil. 

line conception of Cod which science 

hi-, given us is uniformity and intelli- 

We must not go too tar in this, 

for S cien ce cannot prove the love and 

personality of God. Nor must we con- 
nive- Him in our likeness, nor fasten on 
Him the limitations of denomination, 
Creed, or personal experience, but We 
nni-t keep our conception of ( iod broad 
enough that he may be the Father of all. 

Remembering that (iod is behind u-, 
ue should strive to reach the point where, 
,i- children of God, we find his soul 
supreme, and all our thoughts, our 
meditations, to be the breath of Cod in 


The current peace conferences show the Spirit of God is welling up in 
man and is struggling for utterance that 
we may find ourselves in striving for 
peace ami honor. 

There is our partnership with God! 
Through us shall (iod speak! Truly, as 
Joshua said, tomorrow God will do

of invaluable aid, the former paying the

Durkee Speaks on 'The 
Song of the Nibelunge" 

Enlarges on the Mystery Which 
Surrounds this Teutonic Kpic 

Hi" fourth Language and Literature 

department talk of the term was given 
last Tuesday evening by Mr. I.. I.. 

Durkee, subject was "The Song 

<«f the Nibelunge." The '•Nioahmgenlied'' 

is a heroic epic poem from the general 
stock oi mediaeval Teutonic "saga." It 
is of unknown origin, and was written in 

its present form about 12INI. 

The origin of the poem is the subject 
of considerable debate among literature 
students. To them the "Nibelunger" 
means simply the Burgundians. Al 

though there is considerable mythical 

element involved in the story, six ol its 

characters are traceable in history. 

Siegfried, the hen., and another charac 
ter exist in mythology, while two others 
can be found in neither. There are two 

known historical events accounted for in 

the- story, namelj i the downfall of the 
Burgundians to 137 A I >. and the death 

of At ilia in 463 A.I). 

Aside from its historical mystl , v Mi 

Durkee stated thai the interest of the 

poem lies in its narrative. The hour was 

used in the reading of such extracts from 

the epic as would afford the audience the 
enjoyment of mediaeval superstitions, 
ideals, low ,,i strength, chivalry, and 

loyalty which it involves.

a Banquet Scrap betweea the eopbomorea 

and freshmen as in past years. It was 
intended that a substitution for this 
traditional interclass function would be 

suggested; but to the present time there 

have been no contributions for possible 

solutions offered. 

Among the criticisms advanced for the 
abolition of the old time banquet Scrap 
is the belief tliat the .Hair is too one- 

M.lcd. being completely in favor of the 

sophomoies. Perhaps this more than any 

othei fa tor has caused a lack of interest 

M far as the two lower (lasses are con- 
cerned. Secondly, some students believe 
that five or six hours is too long a time 

for the affair. Only a small portion of 
the time is spent in actual competition 

while the remainder of the time is de- 
voted to the consumption of doughnuts, 
sandwiches, and coffee. Thirdly, some 
pacifists claim thai the scrap is brutal 

and not symbolical of the modern atti- 
tude that such physical competition is 
no longer necessary as a means of curb- 
ing a freshman and putting him in his 
propel place. 

It is not a simple matter to suggest a 
remedy lor the first criticism. In fact, 
it would involve a complete change in 
the rules of the |ame SO that the freshmen 
would be permitted to put their oppo- 
nents in a pen in the Im me d iate vicinity 
ol the scrap. Of course, the hours of the 
affair could be shortened and perhaps 
this would make the affair less tedious 
to the competitors as well as to the 
spectators. Why not have three twenty 
minute rushes instead of the three two 
hour rushes? As for the fourth criticism, 
one must ask the q u e sti o n , "Is the scrap 
as brutal as some people think it is?" 
The purpose of such competition is not 
to attempt phyakal injury but it should 
aid in creating a so-called "class spirit." 
This year especially we have seen 
traditions wane until now they have 
become practically extinct on this cam- 
pus. No longer must a freshman wear 
his black cap with the green button 
unless he so desires. No longer is there 
hazing to mar a freshman's comfort and 
to make him contract an inferiority com- 
plex. Perhaps, after all, traditions are a 
thing of the past and have no purpose 
in college life. Then there can be no 
purpose in attempting to hold an annual 
Banquet Scrap this spring or even sug- 
gesting another possible tradition to take 
the place of a time-worn, old-fashioned

"Satisfaction over the budget provision 
for a physical education building at the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College should 
not be confined to officers, students and 
graduates of that institution. Massachu- 
setts people generally should be grateful 
that the state has paid heed, if only in a 
partial and conditional manner, to the 
legitimate needs of one of its own insti- 
tutions. The recommended appropriation 
of $172, 500 in the budget as submitted 
to the legislature by Gov. Allen is made 
conditional upon the raising of $115,000 
by alumni and friends of the college. It 
will be remembered that the movement 
to get a physical education building was 
started privately at a time when the 
state was pursuing so drastic a policy of 

President R. W. Thatcher and Professor 
Frank A. Waugh, head of the department

In the citations given upon this occasion 
President Thatcher was commended upon 
the help he has rendered in various 
capacities in the field of horticulture and 
Professor Waugh, upon raising the stand- 
ards of horticultural education. 

P.S. I would advise that you conserve 
iron pipe, or you will soon be preserved. 
You don't know what these Kongos did

chow. He wasn't disturbed, when at 
dinner he sat destroying a roast or a pie, 
to think it was lacking in granular fat 
or a couple of vitamins shy. He greedily- 
devoured every species of food, untroubled 
by worries or fears lest his health might

ir>e Scribe 

Collage seniors usually form some 
defmite opinions about things during 
their four years ol college life and often- 
times they arrive at conclusions that are 
very good in a critical way. < >f course. 
Ye Scribe understands that some ol 
these conclusions are not so good quite below standard, ... 
fad but he now offers S few ideas that 
some seniors very eondescendinejy gave 
him when he interviewed them. The 

question Ye Scribe addressed to each 
one was: What in your opinion was the 
outstanding occurrence in the four fan 

of your college life? 

Ye Scribe thought it would be a good 
plan if he asked this question to several 
seniors without discriminating whether 
he or she was prominent or not on the 
CampUS. In this way, he hoped to get ■ 

cross-section of opinion if such a thing 

is possible. 

Well, the first victim to Undergo 
questioning was "Deb" Cox. of South 
College fan e. Said "Deb," without any 

"The campaign for the new physical 
education building seems to me the 
outstanding thing that has happened 
since I've been here." 

With a "Thanks, 'Deb'," Ye Scribe 
proceeded to look for someone else. And 
there was "Cert" Ma>lott! What would 
she think? 

"Say, what's the matter with you, 
anyway? Why ask foolish questions? 
The new Practice House takes the cake 
as far as I'm concerned." 

And there Ye Scribe pondered a 
moment. Perhaps this was a foolish 
question. Could any two people agree 
on such a thing as a "most outstanding 
occurence"? For a moment it all seemed 
foolish but Ye Scribe decided to keep up 
the probe just for curiosity's sake, if for 
nothing else. 

"Joe" Lynds, well-known editor, was 

next on the list. 

"It seems to me that the "Aggie 
Kcvue" my freshman year was ni<>-t 

Another idea. But see what "Peg" 

Donovan said. 

"Senior chapel my freshman year with 
all its solemnity struck me more than 
anything else during my college life." 

When "Jiggs" Flliot mentioned that 
the Military Ball in 1030 had been out- 
standing, Ye Scribe was quite bewildered 
as to whether he would get any agree- 
ment at all on this subject. However, 
his fears were soon calmed when he was 
told by "Dean" Swift that he agreed 
with "Deb" Cox on this question. At 
last, Ye Scribe was satisfied. Two 
seniors agreed. 

"When 'Crampy' told us that we were 
only manifestations of energy-and that 
reason says there is no God!" was Elsie 
Haubenreiser's answer. Believe it or not! 
Of all the persons questioned, "Arnie" 
Pottala was the one who gave the most 
instances and the best proof that his 
choice was without doubt the best. \e 
Scribe hesitates to print them but (motes: 
"The new locker system is 'the rasp- 

Naturally, "Wad" VVadleigh would 

have a good choice. This choice was 

loudly seconded by the Scribbler. It was: 

"The act of handing in my O. D. 

military suit for the last time sure was 

the greatest occurence in my college life." 

Like the proverbial Spartans, "Ray" 

Mann spared his words when he answered 

Ye Scribe's question by saying, 

"The new road to Hamp!"

Hoopsters Meet Trinity 
Next Tuesday evening, February 11, 

tin Massachusetts basketeers will meet 
the strong Trinity quintet Ofl the Drill 
Hall surface. Trinity has been debated 
only once so far this season and that ai 
the hands of Springfield College by a 
three-point margin. The Hartfordians 
have chalked up wins over Norwich li'.t 
to 12, Clark 24 to 15, Connecticut 29 to 
25, and Tufts 27 to 13. 

Trinity is well-known in the East .is 
prcduchtg exceptionally good hoop teams

Soft lights, a drill shed magically con- 
verted into a bower oi green, rainbows

femininity under impeccable eacori sway-

of an orchestra strikingly silhouetted on

to be a pan of the Military Ball last

luds fair to threaten the supremacy of 
the Junior "Prom" and Senior "Hop" in

leverest and the most elaborate that has 
been effected in the Drill Hall since its

Tristan and Iseult" is a court epic, 

written by Gottfried von Strassborg in 
1210, duriag the interesting period fol- 
lowing the Norman conquests. At this 

time a new conception of womanhood 

arising which plated woman on a 
pedestal and almost personified her in a 

dess of love. This idea spread from 

South of France, through Germany, 

to Rngland where Thomas of B rittan y 

wrote an epic which became the immedi-

There lias been some criticism on this 

campus recently concerning that course 
commonly known as "Ent 90," which is 

a stuilv of the procege of evolution. It 

lias been suggested that, since its teach- 
ings are dim th opposed to some theo- 
logical doctrine*, it is having u injurious 
effect ui>'"> the minds of students. To 
us, thai does not sound at all reasonable, 

Are the minds of college students so weak 

and delicate thai they must be shielded 
from all idea* thai might stimulate them 

to think? The trouble with the averagl 

person is that be has usually been too 

well protected and petted as far as his 

mental habits .ire concerned. What he 

needs is a broader vision and new ideas 
which he cannot get if he is denied the 


However, we d<> not believe that there 

is anv immediate danger ol the student 
being subject to mental coddling by 
ha\ iny; this course in Question removed 

from the curriculum. We merely wish 
to remind those w ho harbor bars on the 
subject that there is really no nece ss i ty 

for creating additional mental restrictions 

at this college. 


If in our wanderings we chance to 

unit an old acquaintance whom we have 
not seen for a lung time, without hesita- 
tion we greet him with as outstretched 
hand, symbolical <>f friendship existing 

over a lapse of time. If. on the other 

hand, we are walking over campus be- 
tween classes and see a classmate or 
fellow student strolling along a few 

yards in front of us. do we hasten to 
catch ii i > with him. to chat with him as 

we walk along together? 

It Kerns that during the four years in 

which we are supposed to become edu- 
cated people we should gain, above all 
else, an appreciating of friendship and a 
tact of impressing others in the most 
pleasant manner. In other words, a 
cheerful "Hi" or a cheery "Hello" shows 

not only an appreciation of existing 

friend-hip but also a good habit formed 
in that it promotes a closer relationship 
among students. Perhaps, this year we- 

have been a little lax, so to apeak, in 

Carrying OUt this worthwhile tradition. 
Perhaps, WC are too much absorbed in 
our own thoughts as we walk to and fro 
about campus; but nevertheless, just a 
cheerful bit of greeting as we piss im- 
presses the other fellow with the fact 
that there is someone who realiv ac- 
knowledges an existing friendship among 

If anyone should think that Student 

Forum is unnecessary let him suggest 

that it be abolished at the next meeting 
which is scheduled for Wednesday, 

February 10, Before it is eliminated, 

however, the matter must be given 
careful consideration because once given 
up, the Student body will lose what can 
be a very effective means of expressing 


In behalf of the entire student body 
we express our deepest sympathy to Mr. 
John Paul Williams, inter-church secre- 
tary of the College, in the sudden passing 
Of his wife. After a short illness Mrs. 
Williams passed away last Monday after- 
noon and the funeral services were held 
yesterday afternoon at the First Congre- 
gational Church of Amherst, from which 
place the body has been taken to her 
home in Kansas where Mrs. Williams 
will be buried. In the passing of Mrs. 
Williams the- students lose a sincere 
friend who during her short time- in 
Amherst bad made many lasting ac- 

quaintancea among the student body 

and faculty.

She took the lustrous wrap of fur 
She took those gloves 1 bought for her 
She took my words of love and care-

Nothing of a change ill your suggestion. 
It is too much in keeping with present

After all there is not very much m. re 
to be said about Student Forum that has 
not already been said. The fact remains 
that little is accomplished by them, 
through no fault of the organization 
which conducts them. They are, in the 
final analysis, a privilege granted to the 
student body, but are not apparently- 
appreciated in the least. The most 
natural question in the world, it seems 
to us is, why have them? They are not 
forced upon the students by the college 
administration. The members of Adelphia 
would undoubtedly be willing to relin- 
quish the opportunity of a public ap-

I saw your tiny blue white flowers 
Owning in the early hours 
Of the spring. 
I was joyful for I knew 
Soon above your blossoms blue 
birds would sing. 
You were waiting for one note 
To shake off your tiny coat 
And awake 

You felt the touch of the magic wand 
before the violets by the pond 
Or the lake. 

Poets speak of the mayflower rare- 
First to breathe the summer air 
Hut I know 

Your tiny blooms the cold breeze felt 
Ere the ice had time to melt 
Or the snow . 
So I sing this song to you 
Tiny little squares of blue.

The whole campus knows all the ban- 
quet jokes by now. Wonder if the 
gathering in the Davenport used the 

same brand of humor? 


Su/ie savs -he had one bang-up time 
at the Military ball. She was well 
banged-up. What a motley mob! She

crawling under the divan. 


Maybe- she shouldn't have mentioned

Facts are hard things to find but she 
thinks she has found one this time. 
Really, that's a fact. 


And then there was the alumnus who 
came back and spent the evening on the 
side lines of the Drill Hall trying to make 
out the why and wherefore of this new- 
lean to dancing method. Sort of Pisa- 
like, eh what? 

"The Man (Woman) Nobody Loved." 
The one who made the bed-time ruling 
for some of our visiting maidens. 


Even though this is not exactly sweeter 
than sweet, Suzie unearthed it in con- 
nection with the fraternity fcet-togethers 
and here it is:

"You've got fifteen minutes in which 
you can talk to me, so let's get started 
right away. No, I didn't go to Harvard. 
Went to Johns Hopkins instead. I 
majored in English at Yale to get my 
master's degree. I've been a minister 
in the Baptist Church since then and 
have spent the last ten years travelling 
all over the United States in behalf of 
the Baptist Convention lecturing at 
colleges and universities where 1 am 
invited to speak. Say, boy, don't look 
at me so perplexedly! Don't you follow 

As Mr. Foster stopped after delivering 
this short, but very animated, greeting, 
Ye Scribe stood speechless for a moment 
before he took the chair proffered him. 
Surely, this was not the deliberate, calm 
man who had addressed several meetings 
at the College. Something must be- 
bothering him, Ye Scribe thought. 

"Don't look so surprised, I say. You 
see, I have to attend a class up at your 
place in a few minutes, so we have to 
get through with this in a hurry. Come, 
let's go!" 

"I came to find out what you think 
about the American college student body 
as a whole. Do you think the same as 
many outsiders that students are, in the 
main, a group of atheists and Bgnoatks?" 
asked Ye Scribe who had now regained 
a bit ot his self-control. 

"Well, ten years connection with the 
students in colleges all over the United 
States has convinced me that students 
as a whole are more interested in religion 
than in anything else. They are dis- 
covering a whole new realm of reality 
and a new spiritual realm to go with it. 
They are essentially idealistic by nature 

and are constantly looking for a theory 

of idealism." 

"Hut what about all this high-powered 
social life that is taking up most ol the 
time of college students?" 

"1 think the jazz age is softening down 
a bit. Wild "cave-man" stuff isn't quite 
so "wild" as it used to be at least most 
people think that way now. Only fools 
indulge in it. Youth's pleasure to be 
coming more refined and coinmem-sciisi- 


"Then, if this be BO, win is it that the 
outside world considers the- college stu 

dent as young and foolish?" inquired Ye 
S ribe 

"Ignorance and other factors, no doubt, 

i ansa this, (.roups on every campus are 

thinking Beriously but owing to our 
present svstcm of education profound and 
con ne cted thinking among students is 
rare. Our educational system gives in- 
formation in sections; it often does not 
build an intellectual structure. I think 
that religion often sutlers at the hands of 
Specialist teachers who see little outside 
of their own subjects and who lack 
adeepiate philosophic training. The whole 
thing is epiite a problem." 

At that moment, a message came an 
nouncing that Mr. Foster's taxi had 
arrived. As he took leave of Ye Scribe, 
he expressed the opinion that he had 
never met with finer cordiality and in- 
tellectual response than at M.A.C. and 
recommended that Ye Scribe should read 
his latest book entitled "The Coming 
Revival of Religion."

evening when the eleven campus fra-

at various localities between Amherst 
and Creenfield, and were reunions not 
soon forgotten. 

Phi Sigma Kappa held a large banquet 
at Draper Hall, about fifty brothers 
sitting down, ten of whom were alumni. 
Dr. Joseph I. Root '70 was one of the 
distinguished visitors while Prof. Rand

Q.T.Y.'s dinner at which of the sixty 
attending, thirty were alumni. Ernest

brothers were present at its table, includ-

if carried far enough, would to- 
percent grade to one who knew BOH 
the answers. These gentlemen seem to 
feel that with the discovery that

twice as much for an incorrect an 
as is added for a correct answer, the 
method is justified. In reality, though 
the marking of the answers is thereby 
rendered more fair, the method h 
retains all its previous drawbacks. 

In the first place, no active knowledge 
is recpiired to pass such a test. A pan 
knowledge, fomented perhaps by the 
power of suggestion, is sufficient. 01 
what avail is any but a working knowl- 

In the second place, who is wise that 
cannot see the relations between f 
And how can such a quiz show whether 
or not the student sees relations.' A 
knowledge of one fact does not Indicatt 
an understanding of the process in which 
it is involved. Nor indeed, supi"-" 1 ? 
that a comprehension of the pr 
could be formulated into a plus-minu* 
question, would this indicate an under- 
standing of the principles causing the 
process. Theoretically then, there is only 
one question to be legitimately marked 
with a plus or minus -and who is any- 
one to judge? Of course, these oh*erv»"

"The great majority of the Campus 

Kings have wbal is usually called per- 
lonality," Henry F. Pringte reveaai In 
the February College Humor. "And they 
follow, with diligence and no small 
degree of skill, a program approved l>\ 
generation! of alumni. The; important 
tliiun about college, tbej have been told, 
ia success <»u the campus. It was well 
enough for a prospective teacher to make 
Phi Bete, America's standard of culture, 

lull the man who planned sonic other 

career must concentrate on more im 
portanl things. Student success counted 

in that most dim and forbidding of all

manager <>f .1 college paper knows how 

to run an office, He knows, the alumni 
whisper, 'how to handle men.' The

how lo fight. Life, it is set torlli, is seis 
much like a football game. Adopt this 
system, many an undergraduate has 

been advised, and the path to success 

lies smooth before him. 

"Sometimes, alas, it does not. I make 
no generalizations. I am willing to <on- 
cede, statistics to the contrary being 
lacking, that Taff) Brown, the football 
star, the shingle hound and the social 

light may be exceptions. The fact re- 
mains, however, tint the campus king 
frequently find* ii impossible to adjust 

himself when be leaves college. The 

success so glibly promised proves elusive, 

and the contrast with the dSVS he h*l 
known is terrific. 

"So, too, the campus queens. These 

enchanting girls, after whom the stan 
line edged farther and farther into the

The fraternity probation period is 

again approaching) and within three ot 
four weeks the organised freshmen on 
the campus who are eligible for initiation 

into their respective organisations will 

be undiTKoiiiK thai age-old ordeal which 

is >o well known in the < .reek circles. 

Last year a few fraternities on the 

campus abolished the extended rough 
initiation or hell week, substituting in 
its place a week end probation or a 
period known as work-week. However, 
others continued using the same bar 
barioUS tactics that have been ill vogue 
since the modern college fraternits came 

into existence, obstinately refusing to 

make their hell-week ICM severe even 

though their fellow societies in most ol 

the leading schools of the country adopted 
the work week policy. 

This probation si a son on the campus 
should see little of the paddle, for that 
kind <>f pledge training has become out 
ol date in I he colleges. It has lost its 
popularity. College students have re- 
alized that a week or ten d.iss of bar- 
barious treatment will not make their 
freshmen better fraternity material in 
fait, it often makes them worse. Pledges 
Can't be trained in a week that takes 

discipline for several months. Moreover, 
it has been proven that the boresome 

and humiliating tasks imposed upon 
pledges during a week or so ot menial 
work about their houses will accomplish 
all the desirable things that hell-week 
does and will have none ol its evil effects. 
Work of that nature will test the metlle 
ol a pledge and at the same time does 
not injure him or CBUSC him to sutler 

in any waj physically. 

It's high lime that the local organi 
Cations were becoming modern in their 

probation practices. This is the age ot 
culture not barbarianism.
